Spain Supreme Court orders operators to pay RTVE tax

Tuesday 20 June 2017 | 10:59 CET | News
Spain's Supreme Court has ordered the country's telecom providers, free-to-air commercial broadcasters and pay-TV operators to continue funding state broadcaster RTVE via a government-imposed tax after dismissing a number of appeals against the existing legislation. Under the current funding model, which came into force in 2009, telecom operators are required to pay 0.9 percent of their gross revenues to finance the ad-free public radio and TV broadcaster, while free-to-air commercial broadcasters pay 3 percent of their revenues and pay-TV providers 1.5 percent.
