Airbnb – Common Scenarios and Tax Issues 2020 - 25 June 2020 (On Demand)


Airbnb scenarios had become more and more common, and the variations of the letting arrangements were considerable. Many property owners had caught the bug and were letting rooms in their homes, or whole properties, as short-term accommodation. Then along came COVID-19…

This session will focus on some of the most common scenarios that practitioners are facing with their clients in the world that we have found ourselves in. The session will focus on questions we have been asked on taxation issues arising from Airbnb situations.

Some of the key tax issues that arise from these scenarios, which will be talked through in this webinar, include:

  • Key income tax and GST considerations
    • Mixed-use;
    • bright line and land taxation rules;
    • Loss ring-fencing;
    • GST registration;
    • Change of use;
  • Specific scenarios:
    • Sale and purchase agreement considerations;
    • When property provided to associated persons;
    • A client has acquired a property around the time of the lockdown and seeks to claim GST;
    • Mixture of rental activities and changing between long term rental and “Airbnb” rental;
    • Private use and R&M;
    • Ownership structure;
    • Loss-ringfencing;
    • What all of this means when the short-term rental market ceases almost overnight.
