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!

gastos


Explanation:
In this context, it has nothing to do with "benefits", but as you said, with a "charge". Le Robert: "Objet d'une obligation; ce qui est dû par le débiteur". And more specifically, it means "prestations locatives" (du loyer): "charges incombant au locataire, dont le propriétaire peut demander le remboursement" (Le Robert).
