by | Jun 21, 2024 | Alojamento Local, Fiscal, Mais Habitação

The Government today saw their proposal to abolish the special Alojamento Local CEAL tax approved. This tax is called, in Portuguese, the contribuição extraordinária sobre os apartamentos e estabelecimentos de hospedagem integrados numa fração autónoma de edifício em alojamento local.

The Government’s motion was approved by the PSD, CDS-PP, Chega, Iniciativa Liberal and PAN parties, with the PS, PCP, Livre and BE parties voting against the proposal.

The Government had previously delayed the payment of the CEAL tax by 120 days, knowing that this vote was going to take place, and with this new measure coming into effect on 31st December 2023, the vote means that the CEAL tax is now fully revoked, and will not be charged.

At the same time, the increase in property tax (IMI) for Alojamento Local properties was also cancelled. This measure was included in the “Mais Habitação” law.
