Tax on office space and other communal taxes

Most communes impose a tax on floor space and other taxes on the use of certain equipment. The list of taxes is posted on the Communal taxes page elsewhere on this website.

Some communes also impose a surcharge on unoccupied office buildings. There is a move to more widespread use of this surcharge to force owners of unoccupied buildings to find a new use for their property.
