The deadline within which cities and municipalities must make a decision on the amount of the lump sum is January 31, 2019. RELATED NEWS: Also, the question arises as to what over 100.000 renters do in their local communities with the organization of the same public forums and the opening of a dialogue with the City Council (representatives of the local population) who make the decision on the amount of the lump sum. This directly affects and affects the business of private renters, and if there is now no dialogue and the need to openly discuss the amount of the lump sum, then the problem is in the renters themselves. When the decision is made on the amount of the lump sum per bed, then it is too late to “Facebook smart” and call for the “destruction” of private accommodation. It is primarily the responsibility of private landlords to be actively involved in the discussion and open a dialogue with City representatives. Today, starting at 18:30 pm in the Rector’s Palace on Cres, the first public forum will be held on the amount of the lump sum per bed, ie accommodation unit. WITH THE ENTRY IN THE NEW YEAR, THE RESIDENCE TAX WAS INCREASED The law stipulates that the lump sum may not be less than HRK 150 or more than HRK 1.500. However, if the city or municipality does not make a decision on the amount of the flat tax within the given deadline, then according to the Act, the lump sum will be 750 kuna per bed. RENTERS HAVE THE MOST BENEFITS FROM TOURISM?

Also, this is the only right way to develop the local community through dialogue and constructive discussion, so support the organizers and come to the public discussion.
