Regulation: what will change in 2019

As we’re approaching  2019, we would like to inform you of important regulatory and tax developments that could have an impact on your activities on Airbnb. Below we have specified the links where you can go for more detailed information.

  • Transmission by platforms of host income to the tax administration

The law now requires all sharing economy platforms operating in France to transmit income earned  by each user. In January 2020, Airbnb will have to transmit the amount of income you will have earned during the year 2019. This measure is not retroactive, does not change the taxation of your income or exempt you from reporting it on your tax return. We will support you throughout the year to simplify these procedures.

  • 120-day limit in primary residence

Do you rent a room in your primary residence? You can now rent it year-round with no time limit. If, on the other hand, if you rent your entire primary  residence, you can do so within a limit of 120 days a year. This rule is valid everywhere in France.

  • Registration

Several cities have introduced this year a mandatory registration procedure for guests who rent their entire home for short periods. This does not apply to private rooms or medium-term rentals (over 90 consecutive days or under the new “mobility lease” regime). With few exceptions, this means that to continue to accommodate travellers, you must obtain a registration number on the dedicated website set up by your city and then include it in your Airbnb listing. This procedure is free of charge and can be completed in a few minutes.

  • Creation of the mobility lease

If you choose to rent your furnished accommodation (primary or secondary residence) exclusively under a mobility lease to a tenant who is enrolled in training, undergoing a professional transfer or undertaking higher education for example, you are exempt from registration, change of use if applicable and the 120-day limit (this concerns Paris in particular). The mobility lease is valid for leases from 1 to 10 months.
