Annual review of our activity of advice and management of properties for tourist use.

Held at Foment del Treball , in November 2018, our annual assembly as Association of tourist apartments the conclusions could be defined as positive, with fringes of improvement, as always; perhaps the most important: citizen security or dialogue with the Administration.

It should be noted that the percentage of impact of negative news in the city of Barcelona barely reaches 1% in the last two years and is practically 0% in the rest of the towns. Even so, we must continue fighting to defend the position recorded by the media.

Review one and a thousand times more that our activity diversifies the local economy, creates jobs, pays taxes and improves the cultural image of the territories.


Incredible study of seetransparent emphasizing the studies at European level of our activity as property agents and assessors ( PM ). Analysis in points such as the separation between urban and leisure.

The urban is young, a user of technology and less millennial leisure; Of course, generalizing in percentages, let’s put 55% to the urban, 25% to the beach and 20% to the rural.

In terms of growth, the urban doubles its presence, the beach barely rises 10% and the rural does not stagnate, but almost.

By countries it is noteworthy to mention that the most suspicious of the new regulations damaging their businesses are the Portuguese with 81% and the least, the Italians with 48%.

Fun fact is that the managers of between 10 and 49 properties hire an average of 9 people; those between 50 and 99, to 13 and those over 99, to an average of 14. The incidence of investment in technology is very clear.

Channels almost always led by the two large platforms that account for about 60% and which leaves us third parties spending on positioning and throwing something more than imagination.

Regulated, always regulated. The professionals of our sector fulfill with an outstanding in our obligations although the continuous regulation or shade of it, creates uncertainty. Damned word in any economy.

Curious that 87% do not buy market data so necessary in making decisions.


It is very important to review what is coming. The Treasury requires the report of the cessions of tourist housing. This model was approved through Order HFP / 544/2018, of May 24, and published in the BOE on
May 30, 2018.

Informative, non-collection; However, very stormy, with the purpose of collecting undeclared income from real estate capital in IRPF. Not declared, “little” declared or with a reduction of 60% (which does not correspond to them).

We will have to inform of:

  • Identification of the holder or holders of the dwelling; or, the owner of the right (assignor) in the event that it is different from the owner.
  • Identification of the transferee (tourist or tenant).
  • Identification of the property with complete address and cadastral reference.
  • Number of days that the house has been rented for tourism purposes.
  • Amount received by the owner or transferor of the property.
  • Start date of the assignment.
  • Number of intermediation contract.
  • Intermediation date.
  • Identification of the payment method used (card, transfer or other methods).

It will be on a quarterly basis (annual for 2018) and, as an example, through the SII . The penalties will go from € 300 to € 600,000

We recommend the advice of professionals.
