Apologies if I have missed a thread on this topic - but I simply cannot find the information I need.
My wife and I are running a B&B in SW France. We are aware that we are required to collect 0,55 per adult/per night Tourist Taxes. What I cannot find, is…after we collect these taxes, how are we meant to pay them.
Do we report out income somewhere? The reason I ask, is that I have received an invoice for payment of tourist taxes. It states an amount on it, which does not reconcile with my records, and we have already been the target of some official looking correspondence demanding payment for “obligatory” funds or contributions. I am simply unsure if what I have received is true and correct or just another convincing looking scam.
Can somebody provide accurate information as to who collects the tourist taxes from us once we have collected from the tourist and how these funds are paid?
Many thanks for your help and advice on this - we are ready to tear our hair out!!!
