Andersen Tax & Legal publishes its first book on Tourist Legislation in Catalonia

| News

It is the first edition of a code that encompasses the legislation of the Catalan tourism sector

José Luis Aguilar Jiménez, partner at the Department of Public and Regulatory Law of Andersen Tax & Legal, and Julia Shorin, senior lawyer at the firm, have published the first work to bring together the tourist regulations applicable in Catalonia.

The Code responds to the interest created by the tourism sector, and the need for systematising the complex and fragmented regulatory body which involves the tourist legislation in Catalonia.

The Catalan tourism sector currently represents a remarkable 12% of the Catalan GDP. In addition, this figure comes in hand with 17.9 million visits during 2016, and these visits increase year on year.

The current importance of the tourism sector is obvious and, as a result, this has led to the implementation of evermore complex and technical tourist regulations. Hence, this work aims to order and facilitate their consultation by interested users.

The work is structured in three chapters that separate the different Catalan, State and Community regulations. Each chapter contains the applicable tourist legislation and also includes urban planning regulations which have decisive impact on the tourism sector. With a view to speeding up queries, the piece also has two comprehensive indices, one conceptual and another chronological.

This work, edited by Aranzadi in printed and digital formats, is the first edition of a book that encompasses the legislation applicable to the Catalan tourism sector.
