Generating revenue from residential properties has grown in popularity through online booking platforms such as, Airbnb, bookabach and, which has led many to rent out their properties on a short term basis. This, combined with the varied nature of such rentals, present several issues for advisors of such clients to deal with.

Advisors also need to understand upcoming changes to rules that will impact short-term property rental, such as the proposed introduction of loss ring-fencing and capital gains tax. There are also some changes afoot in terms of GST including the calculation of GST where there is an element of private use.
