Airbnb – An overview of GST considerations 2022 - 15 March 2022 (On Demand)


An overview of GST matters that need to be considered if you are letting rooms on “Airbnb” and other short-term rental providers

This webinar will focus on some of the more common GST scenarios that practitioners are facing for their clients with an emphasis on considering the application of the IRD’s position to the various scenarios. This webinar will look at:

  • If your client is required to register because of “Airbnb”
    • If over the threshold
    • Multiple Airbnb’s
    • If they are undertaking another venture but below the threshold
    • If jointly owned “Airbnb” but they had individual registration for another venture
  • If they choose to register for “Airbnb” and there is no other venture
    • Impact on private assets
    • Possible wider implications
    • If your client has a property that was used as short stay accommodation and is not any longer due to COVID
    • Do they have a taxable activity?
    • Do they need to make a change of use adjustment?
    • How do they decide what to do?
    • Any exemptions available?
  • If they move a property into or out of the Airbnb activity
    • Impact when moved in
    • Impact when moved out
  • Deemed market rental situations
    • Family/friends and the mixed use asset rules
    • Associated entities
  • Ownership implications on GST treatment
  • Who is the property let by if the property is owned in a trust and what does that mean for GST purposes?
    • The Trustee
    • The Beneficiary
