Star rating classification of your furnished tourist accommodation
The star rating classification of a furnished tourist accommodation consists in assigning the right star number (from 1 to 5) according to a certain number of criteria. A furnished tourist accommodation can be an apartment, a chalet or a house that is exclusively for tourist rentals and for short periods (no longer than 12 consecutive weeks).
The classification is valid for 5 years. The lessor has to send a new rating request after that period if he/she would like to still benefit from the rating classification.
Why you should classify your tourist accommodation?
1. Marketing advantages
Having a star rating is an assurance of quality and seriousness for your guests. It also enables increased visibility of your accommodation. The classification is indeed handled by a certified body that reviews the confort and services level of your furnished and comes with a stamp of approval. This recognition is therefore a real marketing advantage that is sure to set you apart from your competitors among your national or international customers, which is essential in view of the ever-growing offer.
2. Tax advantages
Classifying your tourist furnished accommodation also enables you to benefit from tax advantages. The main benefit is a flat-rate allowance of 71% on your rental incomes that are under the "micro" category. In other words, you are only taxed on the remaining 29%. As a reminder, the normal rate of allowance without the star rating classification is only 50%.
3. Advantages for your guests
The city tax amount is determined by the star rating of your furnished accommodation. If it's not classified, the city tax could reach up to 5% of the total stay amount, which can be disadvantageous or even dissuasive for your clients.
