High occupancy rate for Irish hotels in May 2018

The revenues obtained by the accommodation units that operate in Dublin, Ireland were influenced on a positive manner due to the occupancy rate, which increased at a fast pace from April (6,6%) to May (12,3%). However, in regions outside Dublin, the occupancy rate increased from April to May by 4.1%
Since this type of business is set up for commercial purposes, the company will be imposed with a set of standard taxes. In the case of an accommodation unit, the value added tax (VAT) also applies, but it is important to know that this sector benefits from a reduced VAT, imposed a rate of 9% starting with 2011. Our team of consultants in company formation in Ireland can offer more details regarding the taxes applicable to hotels and other similar accommodation units operating here.
