The Department of Commerce in Rincon has introduced new measures to help local business. For example the postponement of payment of ‘Declaración Respónsable’ for six months after opening, discount parking and trade advertising in local media.
The councillor, Marta Marin explained that the fees due would now be paid due in two parts; 50% on presentation of the documents and the rest after six months.
Last year 135 licences were processed with fees paid according to the square metres of the establishment.
The new package of measures includes free advertising in the Municipal Press Office and a 60% discount on the monthly parking fee.
These new measures should come into effect in July and it is hopes it will encourage new business in the area.
The Mayor pointed out that there is a 50% bonus on the opening licence for those starting up a business after more than three months of unemployment.
