What requirements must be met for the rental of real estate to be considered an economic activity?
Firstly, it is necessary to have at least one person employed on a full-time contract. In this case, it is also essential that the employee has a minimum workload that requires the hiring of such a person.
In the event that the rental is complemented with the provision of services typical of the hotel industry such as restaurant, cleaning, laundry etc… the income derived from these services will be classified as income from economic activities, regardless of whether the previous requirement of the person is met.
