How do I provide my VAT ID number?

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.

To provide a valid VAT Information Exchange System (VIES) VAT ID number for your account:

  1. Go to Edit Profile on airbnb.com
  2. Under Optional, click Add VAT ID Number
  3. Enter your VAT ID number verification information
  4. Click Verify
  5. Click Save

When your VAT ID number is successfully verified by the European Commission, 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.

Problems verifying 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.
