  • IHF Policies | Irish Hotels Federation
    continue to have a negative impact on the hotel s sector given the significant number of hotels that were built in areas of the country where demand failed to materialise due to dramatic changes in economic conditions The IHF s position is that it is not in the interests of the hotels sector or wider economy for financial institutions to support non viable hotels and that market forces should be allowed take their course in determining which premises continue to survive subject to appropriate levels of credit being made available to otherwise viable hotels merely facing the challenges of a deep market shock Establishing a bank for reconstruction and development directed at the SME sector The worsened business environment since the economic downturn has made it difficult for hotels and guesthouses to obtain required levels of bank credit despite the various credit initiatives introduced by the Government This is limiting the capacity of otherwise viable businesses to invest in marketing and operational quality standards which in turn has major implications for the ongoing potential of tourism in Ireland The IHF s position is that the Government must address these ongoing difficulties in Budget 2013 as part of a medium term higher growth strategy by establishing a new bank for reconstruction and development which would be directed at the SME sector The IHF is calling on the Government to do more to ensure financial institutions facilitate the economy by supplying much needed credit to viable businesses This could be achieved on a risk sharing basis with banks and or direct lending by Government using the banking system as an agent coupled with a more extensive credit guarantee scheme or equivalent Local Authority Rates and Charges The system of Local Authority funding is based on an antiquated taxation system of commercial rates that sees Local Authorities extract taxes relative to the size of premises without sufficient recourse to the profitability of the business operating in that property The country s 900 hotels make a disproportionate contribution to local authority funding paying approximately 90 million a year in rates alone equating to an average of 1 500 per bedroom regardless of recent trading circumstances Hotels no longer have the earnings to pay these excessive rates These excessively high local authority charges are crippling hotels and guesthouses across the country The Valuation Act 2001 was intended to review the excessive charges being demanded by local authorities and after more than 10 years only three of the 88 local authorities have had their areas re evaluated and revised in accordance with this Act The IHF is seeking for the Government to enact legislation to overhaul and streamline the property revaluation process and introduce fairness into the method of valuing hotels and guesthouses taking into account both income and expenditure In the local authority areas that have been re valued hotels have received reductions in the order of 30 Given it is 10 years since the Act has been in existence the IHF maintains that it
