    How do I provide my Value Added Tax ID number?

    Within the European Union (EU)

    If you have a VAT ID number registered with the European Commission, you may want to associate that number with your Airbnb account. You can do this whether you're a host operating as a business, or a guest paying with an employer's payment method. This option is not available in Ireland.

    When your VAT ID number is successfully verified by the European Commission through the VAT Information Exchange System (VIES), you won't be charged VAT on our service fees. It will be your responsibility to self-assess whether you need to pay VAT for the use of our services. As a host, you may consider updating your pricing when your VAT ID is available for use.

    Outside the EU

    If you have a Value Added Tax ID number registered with an authority outside of the EU, you may want to associate that number with your Airbnb account. The Value Added Tax ID number may be known under a different name based on your place of registration:

    • Australia - ABN, ACN
    • New Zealand - GST
    • South Korea - BRN
    • Singapore - GST / UEN / NRIC
    • Taiwan - VAT
    • Belarus - УНП
    • Norway - VAT
    • Iceland - VSK/VASK
    • United Arab Emirates - TRN
    • Saudi Arabia - TRN
    • Serbia - PIB
    • Turkey - VAT

    It will be your responsibility to self-assess whether you need to pay VAT for the use of our services. As a host, you may consider updating your pricing when your VAT ID is available for use.

    To provide a valid Value Added Tax ID number for your account:

    1. Go to Account Settings
    2. Click on Payments & payouts and select Taxes
    3. Click Add VAT ID Number
    4. Enter your VAT ID number verification information
    5. Click Add

    Problems verifying EU VAT ID number

    If your VAT ID number isn't successfully verified by the European Commission, you may want to try re-entering your information. Airbnb isn't able to associate a VAT ID number with your account without this verification, and can't troubleshoot problems. For a list of correct formats for VAT ID numbers by member state and additional information, please see the European Commission's VIES FAQ.

    If your VAT ID number can't be verified and you determine you need to self-assess VAT on our service fees, we encourage you to consult a tax advisor for assistance.
