Big Budget Boost for AirBnB Owners

Chancellor George Osborne has announced a tax break for those renting their apartments on sharing economy platforms like Airbnb.

From April 2017, Airbnb owners will not need to declare the first £1,000 of rental earnings.

In separate news, from April 2016 people who rent their spare room can earn £7,500 per year tax free.

An Airbnb Spokesperson comment: “The UK has set itself as a global leader for the sharing economy and is introducing progressive new rules that empower regular people and promote innovation through technology”.

Peter Kent, The Guest Butler added: “My clients already earn up to 50% more than via long-term lets and these tax breaks make the benefits even greater”.
