Accommodations business has been targeted $27.8 million to fund Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development. To quote Aotearoa, ‘’ Despite requests, no breakdown has been provided of this expenditure,” says the TIA in a submission to Auckland Council on the targeted rate. The lack of information or explanation about these matters is concerning.”

The organization had responded to seven requests in total for information in the last two months and anything that had been withheld had been for commercial or privacy reasons as confirmed by Ateed, spokeswoman. Auckland Council is interested to shift the funding of Ateed from ratepayers to 330 accommodation providers, ranging from backpackers to camps to posh hotels as part of its annual budget plan. Accommodation sector has enormously profited from the tourism boom followed by increased room rents for hotels as confirmed by Auckland mayor Phil Goff. So, paying to the Ateed was justified than ratepayers.
