Hotels, restaurants, sports halls: 3-month postponement of the payment of the audiovisual tax

How to benefit from this extension?

  • For companies under the normal actual regime: you must declare and pay the public audiovisual contribution in support of the monthly or quarterly declaration that you will file in July 2021.
