30% tax on advance payments in accommodation

4 days ago

Hello! I'm about to make a reservation at a hotel in the north, but the page requires me to make room payment in advance. The rate shown on it is in USD and then an amount converted to AR$. My doubt is, and I tried to contact the hotel but they did not know to answer, the charge in the summary will come in dollars or Argentinean pesos? If it comes in dollars, I understand you'd apply the additional 30% to anyone.
Clarification: I see a lot of questions on the same subject but I understand that the difference is that in the other cases the payment is made directly at the hotel in Argentine pesos and in this case IF would not apply 30% surcharge, my punctual doubt is what happens when you have to pay in advance.

Thank you so much in advance for the help!

Hello! It's in pesos, you make the normal deposit that 30% and then you pay it at the hotel any way you want in pesos

all transactions in the national currency denominated in dollars are converted for the purposes of their invoicing at the bco exchange rate. That is why the 30% tax is not due because you. Buy some currency.
