Why do you have to collect VAT?
In order for Cordoba to impose a value-added tax, the argument of the Tax Authority was greater than the argument of the Muslim Brotherhood, which understood that Seville case Where the Central Administrative Economic Court (TEAC) exempted the seats and boxes of the official race of Holy Week in Seville from the payment of VAT, it can be extrapolated to Córdoba. However, in fact, it was this decision of the TEAC that gave a clue as to why Córdoba paid the tax. On the one hand, the resolution stated that “when the parade parades of the so-called solemn race during Holy Week are not thought free and free, that is, Reserved, exclusively for people who pay for itThe sale of subscriptions for seats and boxes to contemplate such rallies is a service subject to and exempt from VAT. It will be understood that the contemplation of parades is not exclusively confined to those who pay, when an audience which does not, even without access to areas of chairs or chests, can contemplate parade marches normally, throughout or part of the official race, because There is no relevant obstacle stopping him. On the other hand, the decision added:If such marches can usually be contemplated by any person, by the whole or part of the official professionwithout having to pay for it, that is, if access to it is free and free, the sale of subscriptions for seats and boxes would in this case constitute an objective service and Not exempt from value added taxtaxed at the general rate of 21%.”
The latter is what happens in Cordoba In different areas of the official race, such as the Patio de los Naranjos, where you can access freely and free of charge during parade parades which, in addition, are part of the official race. Not only does this happen at the Patio de los Naranjos of the Mosque-Cathedral, however Also at the start of the official tour in Puerta del Puente.
