How do I provide my Value Added Tax (VAT) ID number?
If you have a Value Added Tax (VAT) ID number registered with the European Commission, or with an authority outside the EU, you may want to associate that number with your Airbnb account.
Within the European Union (EU)
You can add your VAT ID number whether you're a host operating as a business, or a guest paying with an employer's payment method.
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
The VAT ID number may be known under a different name based on your place of registration:
- Australia - ABN, ACN
- Belarus - УНП
- Canary Islands - IGIC
- Colombia - VAT
- Iceland - VSK/VASK
- Japan - JCT
- New Zealand - GST
- Norway - VAT
- Saudi Arabia - TRN
- Serbia - PIB
- Singapore - GST / UEN / NRIC
- South Korea - BRN
- Switzerland - VAT
- Taiwan - VAT
- Turkey - VAT
- United Arab Emirates - TRN
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.
In Switzerland and Japan, the presence of a VAT ID will not exempt from VAT charges applied to service fees based on local law.

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.
