What is tourist tax?

This is a tax voted by local authorities for the whole of their territory, the aim being to get tourists to contribute to local tourism development. (Article L.2333-30 of the Code Général des Collectivités Territoriales).

There are two types of tourist tax, each calculated differently:

  • the actual tourist tax This is paid by the customer to the accommodation provider, who passes it on to the management company; the amount corresponds exactly to the number of visitors,
  • the flat-rate tourist tax This is a flat-rate charge, whether or not the property has been rented.

How does the tourist tax service work?

Since 2021, the 3 communities of communes of the Pays d'Uzerche, Lubersac-Pompadour and Vézère Monédières Millesources have set up online tax declaration sites. These allow you to make your declarations directly online.

The tourist tax is monitored and managed by administrators appointed by the communities of communes. They are your point of contact for all questions relating to the tourist tax.

How much tourist tax should I charge my customers?

Do you need to determine how much tourist tax you should charge your customers?

Whether your accommodation is classified or not, you can use the calculator on the declaration websites.

Online booking platforms ask me for a "registration number"!

Platforms such as AirBnB, Abritel, etc. regularly ask for a 13-digit registration number to complete/validate your registration. This number has been set up in towns and cities in so-called "high pressure" areas (Bordeaux, Lyon, Nice, Paris, etc.) to regulate seasonal lettings.

None of the 44 municipalities in the area has set up this registration number.

You can therefore tell the platforms by sending a message/email that "your commune is not subject to the registration number". If necessary, you can also provide the contact details of the Tourist Tax Department.

I've opened a bed and breakfast. What formalities do I need to complete?

You must make a declaration to the Mairie before letting your property, using the CERFA form:


I'm stopping my hosting business. What do I need to do?

You must inform the Tourist Tax Department :

  • if you are no longer renting the accommodation but are keeping it for your own use, you must submit a certificate of honour,
  • if you are selling your accommodation, you must submit a certificate of sale to close the account.
