The taxation of income from short term rentals including income from Airbnb lettings
June 28, 2018
Revenue has recently released updated guidance on the taxation treatment of income arising from the provision of short-term accommodation.
The key point of the updated guidance is that the provision of short-term accommodation will not create a landlord/tenant arrangement i.e. if you rent out a room on a short-term basis using a platform like Airbnb, you will not be treated as a landlord earning rental income and the guest will therefore not be treated as a tenant.
