Currently consulting on

Let us know what you think about our drafts. Are they technically accurate? Do they fairly reflect taxation legislation? Are they in line with commercial reality and useful in practical situations?

PUB00303/a to PUB00303/g: Renting out your home, a room within your home, or a separate residential property as short-stay accommodation.

We’re consulting on 7 draft items that explain your tax obligations if you rent out your home, a room within your home, or a separate residential property. These items focus on short-stay accommodation provided through peer-to-peer websites such as Airbnb, Bookabach or Holiday Houses.

To help you work out which items are relevant to your situation, you should read the Overview first. The Overview has flowcharts you can work through to find the items most relevant to your situation, and links straight through to those items.

We’ll be consulting on some further draft items on short-stay accommodation in the coming months - one covering the GST issues in detail, and one covering the issues that arise where the property is held in trust.
