Airbnb set to hand over hosts’ names to Revenue

Online short-term lettings platform Airbnb is set to hand over details on thousands of hosts in Ireland who let out property via the website in 2017, as part of an information-sharing agreement with the Revenue Commissioners. The move comes as regulations for greater enforcement of the short-term lettings market are set to be announced next week. The global platform, which has attracted significant criticism of late for taking properties away from the long-term rental market, and may be the subject of upcoming rules and regulations from the Department of Housing, has until the end of September to pass on details of all the hosts on its site.
