ALFAZ’S bar-owners and restaurateurs will not be charged for terrace tables that occupy public property during the last three months of the year.

Finance councillor Jose Plaza announced that the local government had again decided to waive the municipal tax in order to help the hospitality industry ride out the present economic and energy crisis.

Alfaz town hall waived the terrace tax throughout the pandemic and decided to carry on annulling the charge during the first quarter of this year, Plaza said, and has decided to do so again.

“The fourth quarter tends to be the slackest for terraces because of the bad weather,” the councillor added.  “Here at the town hall, we have approved this measure to assist one of the sectors that most suffered during the pandemic and this way also help to reactivate the local economy.”
