If you have an EU property listing, or have an EU country of residence according to our records, new EU law (“DAC 7”) requires Airbnb to collect and share your taxpayer information on your listings. We built a new product to make it easier for hosts to provide income tax info and assign to each listing. 

 

After January 1, 2023, Hosts will have 60 days from the date of your first 2023 check-in to provide this information.

 

If we don’t receive the requested information within 60 days of your first 2023 check-in:

  • We will be required to suspend your ability to accept new bookings or receive payouts from completed stays until your taxpayer information is received. 

 

Avoid interruptions to your payouts in 2023 - add income tax info to your Account today. 


We have also started compiling answers to your most common EU tax questions, and will continue updating as we hear more. What questions do you have about these upcoming EU tax changes?

@Emiel1 my first thought was does this apply to the UK? Many EU laws are just grandfathered over to the UK but I am not sure what happens to new/updated laws post the Brexit nightmare.

@Airbnb My question is does this apply to the UK

In the link to "commmon EU tax questions" (see post) the UK is not mentioned in the list of countries.

Maybe wait until Airbnb is starting to sent messages to update your listing(s)....

@Emiel1 hopefully that is the case not least because the tax year in the UK runs from April 6th not Jan 1st as in more normal countries!

@Mike-And-Jane0 Quick update, the UK is not included in DAC 7 so this doesn't apply to UK Hosts.

@Markus489 As a professional property manager you should be able to get advice very easily from your accountants.

We've had this in Norway since 2018. It was a requirement for Airbnb to be allowed to operate n European territory. EU is coming late to the table.

I’m not an entrepreneur and therefore have no Tax ID number in the Netherlands. Must I go to the chamber of commerce and sign up there in order to keep hosting on Airbnb, which I only do occasionally in my private home - obviously not as a ‘business’?!

I have a listing in Poland and this new law threw me in for a loop. I’m not an entrepreneur and  have no Tax ID number in Poland.  Furthermore, I reside in US and pay taxes in US. Not only I have no tax id in Poland, I do not know how to obtain one.

I asked host support for help in finding out how to obtain one, but my request was only answered with a generic link to the Polish law which did not help i any way to solve my problem.

I am very disappointed in complete lack of Airbnb host support in this matter. They have a team in Poland and surely that team pays taxes in Poland so someone on that team would be able to advise on how to obtain Polish Tax id. I hope the Airbnb management could reconsider this and create a resource for those of us who are in this situation. I am sure I am not the only one.

@Anna636 I understand it can be confusing especially when your listing is in a different country, so thank you for raising this! I've passed it onto the team, I'll let you know as soon as I know more. 😃
