Tax Considerations For Hosts

As an Airbnb host, your earnings carry distinct tax considerations. Reporting rental income accurately, identifying potential deductions, and ensuring compliance with tax regulations can be intricate.

At National Accounts, we specialise in addressing Airbnb tax implications. We guide hosts through the process, meticulously reporting rental income, maximising allowable deductions, and guaranteeing that all tax obligations are fulfilled.

Do I need to pay tax on my Airbnb income in Australia?

Yes, you do. Whether you’re using Airbnb, Stayz, or have a private rental agreement within your own home, the ATO considers any money you earn as assessable income. So you must declare it at tax time.

Your earnings will then be added to your wages or other income, and you will be taxed according to the tax bracket you fall into at the end of the financial year.

What can I claim as rental expenses on my tax return?

Airbnb expenses that can be either fully or partially deducted include:

I’m Renting An Entire Home

Your deductions are similar to those of other landlords. They're claimable for the period your property was rented or available for rent. For example, if you use your holiday home for 4 weeks annually, deductions apply to the remaining 48 weeks when the property was rentable or vacant.

I’m Renting a Room in the Home I Live

For a specific rented portion, expenses are claimed proportionally based on floor area. Deductions apply only when the space is occupied or available for rent. Shared spaces like kitchens and lounges are apportioned by access. If both you and the renter use a space equally, deduct 50% of related expenses.

Knowing How Much You Can Claim

The amount that you can claim from your Airbnb rental depends on whether you rent out an entire home, or a portion of a home.
