“We divided the recreation area and the residential sector. For pensions, we have established the tourist tax in the amount of 0.11 percent of the minimum wage, and for the private sector – 0,048, which is only two hryvnia per day per person. We have the lowest rates among competitors. Foreigners, we decided not to highlight – they will pay the same as citizens of Ukraine. But the previous procedure for calculating tursbor, in my opinion, was much better, because now the owner of the hotel with a high price to pay in the same way as the owner of the housing economy class” – said Pajusco.
Recall that low rates of tursbor also adopted in Truskavets (0.2 per cent for domestic tourism); in Lviv (0.2 to 0.5% depending on the cost of the hotel rooms), Dnipro (of 0.35 to 1.5%, depending on the cost of the hotel rooms).
