Airbnb - Key tax considerations 2018


The popularity of using online booking platforms such as, Airbnb, bookabach and, on the back of a strong tourist market in New Zealand, has led to many renting out their properties on a short term basis. This presents a number of new issues for advisors of such clients to deal with.

This webinar will work through the various taxation issues and commercial considerations that advisors need to be aware of, including:

  • Income Tax – outlining the specific rules that can apply to such short-term rentals; 
  • GST – is often a big unknown for clients who are not used to the issues and implications that arise with GST, especially when it comes to their primary home; 
  • Ownership issues – the implications of the above can be dictated by how properties are owned, we will cover off these implications and also highlight some issues if you are considering restructuring ownership of the property; 
  • Commercial considerations – a high level focus on issues such as insurance, council requirements/restrictions, and lending issues.


By attending this course you will get a better understanding of the issues that taxpayers will face when they rent their property/homes short term, especially via online platforms likes Airbnb, bookabach etc.
