The municipality of Vir has started a three-month control of illegal landlords

first_img“We carry out actions in order to primarily protect all legal landlords and all our citizens who are conscientiously and legally engaged in tourism. During the three summer months, we will conduct a detailed registration of all guests, commercial and non-commercial, in the field, because our ultimate goal is to suppress and eradicate undeclared work.”Says the director of the Vir Tourist Board, Srdjan Liverić.  “Our task is to provide tourists and all guests of the island with a top tourist and catering service and to create programs and facilities to make their stay on the island as beautiful and fun as possible. A few years ago, we raised the standard of events at the Vir Summer to the highest possible level, which was recognized not only by our guests, but also by all residents of Zadar County who visit the island as a picnic destination in the summer season. The reason is simple: there is always something going on at Vir”Points out the director of Vir tourism Kristina Perić. Also, just as illegal renters do not pay tourist tax, the same amount is not poured into the municipal treasury, from which funds are allocated for the promotion and development and arrangement of the entire infrastructure. Precisely with the aim of combating illegal renters from the end of June in the Municipality of Vir, they started intensive quarterly tourist controls with the ultimate goal of combating the gray economy. Finally, another interesting fact is that there is currently no hotel in Vir, and all guests are accommodated in private accommodation. Illegal landlords are the biggest threat to legal landlords who pay all their obligations to the state. Apart from the fact that illegal landlords do not pay taxes and all other levies prescribed by law, they also lower prices and are therefore unfair competition. From 27.06. Municipal Police of the Municipality of Vir, TZO VIR, State Inspectorate and MIA of the Department for Foreigners control the registration of tourists, weekenders and their guests in the settlements Kozjak, Pedinka, Site, Torovi and Šepunatka, carry out increased control of registration of tourists, weekenders and their guests .center_img In the first six tourist months, Vir achieved better statistical indicators of tourist arrivals and overnight stays than in the record year of 2018, so with 363.671 overnight stays (357.654 last year) and 30.242 arrivals of domestic and foreign guests (last year 30.136) it set new tourist records. It is interesting that the Municipality of Vir is the only tourist destination that does not fight against illegal landlords in such an intensive way. Also, the question always arises: Do you want to report a neighbor who is illegally renting an apartment to guests? Why not, because this is how you turn out to be fools. While you pay all obligations, from VAT, sojourn tax, etc.… others do not, and such a neighbor is your direct competition. As they point out from the Municipality of Vir, the action is part of a three-month intensive control that will be carried out in all Vir settlements with the ultimate goal of combating the gray economy in tourism and protecting all renters who duly fulfill their legal obligations.
