Airbnb agree tax­a­tion deal

The Herald - - INTERNATIONAL -

On­line room-rental site Airbnb is to au­to­mat­i­cally re­port its users’ deals to tax au­thor­i­ties in Den­mark.

It is thought to be the first coun­try where the au­to­matic re­port­ing of deals will take place.

Tax min­is­ter Carsten Lau­ritzen said that Airbnb “has com­mit­ted to re­port data so their hosts pay taxes”.

He said Airbnb will reveal the num­ber of rent­ing days and its users’ to­tal in­come.

The deal closes a loop­hole that had let hosts re­port to tax au­thor­i­ties on a vol­un­tary ba­sis.

Dan­ish po­lit­i­cal par­ties on Tues­day agreed to limit room-rental ser­vices such as Airbnb to a max­i­mum of 70 days a year per prop­erty.
