Airbnb – the tax position in Ireland

Posted by mxs on 13th August 2015One Comment

IRELAND: Be warned, Airbnb are legally obliged to give details of hosts income to the Revenue Commissioners in Ireland.
Airbnb had stated that income from renting rooms was NOT taxable under the “rent a room” tax relief scheme
The Irish Revenue’s position is that the “rent a room” relief scheme is not open to Airbnb hosts and relief is only available for people who let out a room on a permanent or semi-permanent residential basis, perhaps to a single person or student for six or nine months.
The B&B Owners Association (previously B&B Network) has never been asked by the Revenue to provide information on the income of it’s members.
Our advice stay well clear – Airbnb has gained a certain reputation in the countries it operates often with a disregard for established B&B businesses and the local regulations.

We randomise the order we display B&Bs on our websites in order to give everyone a fair chance of business. However, you can always be at the top of the page for you town if you have last minute deals or special offers.

Additionally, last minute deals are syndicated across many of our Directories, portals and regional websites as well as our RED DOT DEALS websites.
