KZN STUDY ON HOSPITALITY LEVY UNDERWAY:
The KZN Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs has commissioned a study to determine the feasibility of introducing a 10% hospitality levy. The proposed levy is intended to generate funds for the Province to bid for national and international events.
The study is a follow-up of the workshop that took place between government officials in Province and private sector (both provincial and national) in 2014 and seeks to establish the viability of the proposal and its potential impact. Provincial workshops on the matter are on the cards and all industry role-players who participated in the 2014 workshop will be engaged.
