FRANCE: TAX ON RENTALS FOR AIRBNB REACHED 93 MILLION EUROS
This year, Airbnb paid €93 million in tourist tax on rentals to French communes, compared to €58 million in 2019. The company did not disclose the amount for 2020 when its revenues plummeted due to the health crisis.
The largest amounts of tourist tax were collected in Paris (9.4 million euros), Marseille (1.9 million), Nice (1.2 million) and Cannes (1 million), according to the company statement. Out of some 29,000 municipalities that collected the tax on rentals via Airbnb, those with fewer than 3,500 inhabitants shared 27 million euros or 29% of the total.
France, the Second Largest Market for Airbnb
This data concerns the period from November 1, 2020, to October 31, 2021, says the platform, which makes its second-largest turnover in the world in France after the United States. Airbnb, on the other hand, invoked its status as a listed company to no longer publish the number of accommodations offered in France, nor specify what the rentals brought in for the hosts.
Required, like all platforms since 2019, to transmit to the municipalities the data on these stays (number of travelers, duration and amount of reservations, price per night, addresses of rented properties ...) Airbnb will provide in December the data from May to October 2021.
The communities set the level of the tax on rentals between 1% and 5% of the price of accommodation excluding tax per night per person, and a number of them have raised it this year.
More Than 200,000 Euros in Taxes
They can collect up to 4.10 euros per night, the rate of palaces, on these rentals, since the legislator allowed it in November 2020 - an "iniquitous decision" had then stated the UNPLV, which represents several platforms (Airbnb, Abritel, TripAdvisor, LeBonCoin ...). At the same time, 17 cities have set up a mandatory registration number to better control these rentals, including Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Aix-en-Provence, Saint-Malo or Annecy.
"Full implementation" of this measure has been delayed until February 2022 in Marseille due to "difficulties" of "some hosts" in "creating their user account on the city's website," Airbnb claims.
The same is true in Nice, where the system "raises serious legal issues," according to the platform, "with municipal officials investigating hosts before issuing the registration number" instead of providing it automatically.
On the tax front, Airbnb France paid €204,662 in corporate tax for 2020, compared to €193,398 for 2019: only the marketing services billed by Airbnb Ireland to its French subsidiary - very marginal compared to the platform's overall activity in France - are taxed.
Revenues generated by the rental of tourist accommodations in France go to Airbnb Ireland and are thus subject to Irish taxation, which is much more favorable, but Airbnb specifies that it pays "VAT" and "tax on digital services" in France.Related articles hospitality AIRBNB FOLLOWS THE TREND OF NEW LIVING AND TRAVEL CULTURE hospitality STRICTER REGULATIONS FOR AIRBNB GRAVELY AFFECT THE PLATFORM tourism AIRBNB MODEL TO CHANGE – OWNERS TURNING AWAY FROM SHORT-TERM RENTALS Comments Add Comment xxxCancel reply Afghanistan Albania Algeria Andorra Angola Anguilla Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Australia Austria Azerbaijan Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia Bosnia & Herzegovina Botswana Brazil Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Chile China Colombia Costa Rica Croatia Cuba Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Djibouti Dominican Republic East Timor Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia EU Faroe Islands Fiji Finland France French Polynesia Gabon Gambia Georgia Germany Ghana Global Greece Greenland Grenada Guaedloupe Guam Guatemala Guernsey Guyana Honduras Hong Kong Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iran Iraq Ireland Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kosovo Kurdistan Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Laos Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Libya Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macau Macedonia Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Maledives Malta Marshall Islands Martinique Mauritania Mauritius Mexico Micronesia Moldova Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Myanmar Namibia Nepal Netherlands Netherlands Antilles New Caledonia New Zealand Nicaragua Nigeria Niue Norfolk Island North Korea Northern Mariana Islands Norway Oman Other Other Other Other Other Other Other Pakistan Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Poland Portugal Puerto Rico Qatar Reunion Romania Russia Rwanda Saint Kitts and Nevis Saint Vincent & the Grenadines Samoa (American Samoa) Samoa (Western Samoa) San Marino Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Slovakia Slovenia Somalia South Africa South Korea Spain Sri Lanka St Martin Sudan Suriname Svalbard and Jan Mayen Swaziland Sweden Switzerland Syria Taiwan Tanzania Thailand Tibet Togo Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Uganda Ukraine UNESCO United Arab Emirates United Kingdom UNWTO Uruguay USA Uzbekistan Vanuatu Vatican Venezuela Vietnam Virgin Islands (British) Virgin Islands (U.S.) Yemen Zambia Zimbabwe
