GNERC Introduces Changes to Water Consumption Tax Bill for Guesthouses

Georgian National Energy and Water Supply Regulatory Commission (GNERC) plans to introduce a new system of calculating water consumption tax for guesthouses, the commission chairperson Irina Milorava noted. 

Changes have been made to the initial bill, she said.

“Amendments refer to the volume of consumed water that is subjected to household tariff. Before introducing the mentioned changes, we requested additional information from companies to make sure that 20 cubic meters genuinely satisfy the family needs and we increase this volume to 25 cubic meters”, Irina Milorava said.

According to the amendments, guesthouses will have to pay commercial tariff if they consumer more than 25 cubic meters of water, while the less volume will be taxed by household tariff.
