In the face of the coronavirus crisis, the Spanish Confederation of Hotels and Tourist Accommodations (CEHAT) has requested that hoteliers be allowed to defer their Social Security payments for a period of no less than three months, without surcharges or interest.
In order to guarantee the liquidity of its member companies, it has also requested the postponement of local tax payments, such as IBI, IAE and municipal taxes. In a statement, the CEHAT expressed its absolute support for the measures adopted by the authorities to try to detain the coronavirus, such as the suspension of Imserso travel. At the same time, it demanded that the State implement a package of urgent measures to mitigate the economic impact that this health crisis is having in a very direct way on the national tourism sector.
