Ports de la Generalitat


Taxes update Ports de la Generalitat

Law 2/2023, of 16 March, on the Government of Catalonia’s budget for 2023 has been approved and published in the Official Journal of the Government of Catalonia no. 8877 of 17.03.2023, and came into force on 18.03.2023.

Ports de la Generalitat, as a public-sector company attached to the Ministry of Territory, forms part of the Government of Catalonia’s public sector, which is subject to its budget law.

According to Article 43 of Law 2/2023, concerning the updating of fees, the Catalan Government’s fixed-charge fees will be increased, for 2023, to the amount obtained by applying the coefficient 1.03 to the amount for 2022. In compliance with this precept, the update is applied to all of the Government of Catalonia’s fees, including port fees.

Consequently, the port fees that bear fixed charges, as provided in Law 10/2019, of 23 December, on ports and transport in ocean waters and inland waterways, partly amended by Article 14 of Law 3/2023, of 16 March, on tax, financial, administrative and public-sector measures for 2023, are updated to the amount obtained by applying the coefficient 1.03 approved by the budget law.

The updated port fees are those published in the ports.gencat.cat website and will soon be published in the Official Journal of the Government of Catalonia, for information purposes. Annex 1, attached, details the fees that will be charged in 2023.

With the enactment of the budget law, the port fees will be settled, in the case of the corresponding licenses that are currently in force, taking into account the update established in the above-stated Law.
