Seasonal Tourist Deduction
Office of Finance
A business that is closed for at least four months in the taxation year and is a restaurant, roofed accommodation, or camping establishment is considerate a Seasonal Tourist Business and may receive a reduced tax rate on your tax bill.

To be eligible for a reduced commercial tax rate, property owners must apply and demonstrate that their seasonally operated tourist business is open during some part of the taxation year but closed for at least four months in the same taxation year (April 1 to March 31).
