The City Council is offering a Voluntary Personalised Payment System to those who want to divide their tax obligations into installments throughout the year for those who may be struggling at present.

The latest measures have been taken to assist many small businesses that have to close or reduce their hours, which is why the Consistory has postponed the first voluntary payment term of the municipal taxes (Taxes on Mechanical Traction Vehicles, Vehicle Entry Tax, Urban Solid Waste Management Tax) that was due to start on February 8th.

The Consistory aims to prevent payment demands from being received when many companies have limited activity or are closed.

Therefore, the voluntary period is delayed in mid-March (from March 15 to June 14) , being confident that by those dates activity will have recovered.

Regarding the IBI in urban and rustic and the Economic Activities Tax (IAE) -this will be maintained from August 6th to November 19th, although from Revenue they could propose changes if circumstances dictate.

The head of the Treasury recalls that all taxpayers have the possibility of planning a formula that best suits them to face local taxes (in installments throughout the year) through the Voluntary Personalised Payment System, which also reports bonuses to those who pay before the deadlines in voluntary.

To find out about this system, those interested can consult the municipal website http://ajxabia.com/ver/5212/recaudacion.html or contact the collection area staff either by phone –the direct number is 966508861- or by mail [email protected]

If you need to request an appointment for face-to-face care, you can also manage it electronically via the municipal website https://citaprevia.ajxabia.com/

Business meeting

In addition to making these payments more flexible, the City Council has approved other support measures for this 2021 such as the exemption of the fee for hotel terraces, the suppression of the fee for business opening and works on direct support lines for those it already has initially reserved 1.5 million euros.

The mayor, José Chulvi, informed the business associations of these initiatives and has promised that the government team, aware of the sacrifice that small businesses are making, will be by their side in everything that is in their power .

At the meeting, Chulvi has advanced to them that Javea has “economic capacity and political will” to support them in this difficult situation and has detailed some of the measures that are being valued as well as that the municipality will adhere to the “Pla Resistir” that promotes the Generalitat Valenciana.

These issues have also been dealt with in a meeting of spokespersons held late in the morning, a meeting in which the parties have been summoned to resume regular meetings to continue outlining the various aids available.
