The short-term rental market will be even more controlled by the state


The Senate has approved the new law that would require short-term rental platforms such as Airbnb, Booking and others to provide the state with information about their guests and the provided services.

   So, during 30 days short-term rental platforms are required to provide the full information about the concluded contracts, including the number and cost of accommodation services, the address of the apartment and the contact details of the owner. It will also be needed to provide the detailed information about the guest in case of the request of thesanitary service.If the platform refuses to transmit the mentioned above information within 30 days, it will be qualified as a crime, for which is a fine up to one million Czech crowns.These measures should prevent the spread of the coronavirus and facilitate the search for people who have come into contact with the infected people. 
   It is worth noting that this is not the first time, when the government is interested in those who rent housing for a daily basis.Thus, in 2018, the financial department announcedthat it had the information about those, who evaded taxes and declared incorrect information about their income.They were sent a written invitation to submit an additional tax return with the correct data.
