Airbnb recently agreed to comply with local tax laws in Greece through a collaboration agreement it signed with the Greek tax administration.

“This agreement is great news for hosts on Airbnb and it will make it easier for more people in Greece to share their homes,” said Giacomo Trovato, Country Manager for Italy and South East Europe.

As part of the agreement signed with the Greek Independent Authority for Public Revenue (known as AADE), hosts in Greece from June 1 will need to include a registration number before posting an ad, and Airbnb will work with local authorities to remove all ads that are not compliant.

According to Airbnb, the agreement supports the responsible and sustainable growth of home sharing in Greece and make it easier for hosts across the country to share their homes and follow the rules.

The AADE said the collaboration with Airbnb is “an important step” which indicates its eagerness to hope for the resumption of travel and tourism in Greece.

“We are committed to working with governments and authorities on these kinds of partnerships that help families and support responsible tourism,” added Trovato.

The announcement is the latest in a series of recent collaborations between Airbnb, governments and local authorities in Europe, underpinned by the City Portal – a one-of-a-kind solution, designed exclusively for governments and tourism organizations, which includes local tools and data – specific for a deeper partnership with Airbnb.

Earlier this year, for example, Airbnb announced a “Historic Commitment” to the French government, including a pledge to enforce host registration in the big cities of France.

In addition, Airbnb also supports the work of the European Commission to update its rules for internet platforms in Europe, and signed a data sharing partnership with the European Commission to help governments and leaders access the information they need.

Airbnb recently announced that it has signed more than 100 partnerships and collaborations – from Scotland to Seville – with destination marketing organizations, governments and nonprofits to support local economic recovery, as part of a initiative launched in June 2020.
