French to English translations [Non-PRO] Law/Patents
French term or phrase:prestations
Context: lease agreement on business property (France)
..le loyer, ainsi que les charges et prestations, e'entendent taxe sur la valeur ajoutee.
As this is usually some kind of benefit, what does it mean in this context, which seems to be some kind of charge?
Explanation: The "charges and prestations" are the typical add-ons to commercial lease fees. (They correspond roughly to the monthly maintenance fees that owners of co-op apartments are required to pay.) -- The sense of your phrase is this: "Value-added tax will be applied to the lease amount and also to the related expenses [or "charges"] and maintenance fees..." In other words, soak the tenant!
Explanation: A lease is a contract and performance is common in that context. my source is:mastering french business vocabulary a thematic approach; bernard gillman & martin verrel :barron's publishing, 1996
