BHTA wants AirBnb taxed


Share post:

BARBADIANS RENTING or leasing their properties as AirBnb hosts may eventually be regulated and taxed.

Chief executive officer of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA), Rudy Grant, has disclosed that draft regulations for the new players in the local tourism industry are being prepared, following representation made to the regulatory authorities by the BHTA.

Grant told BHTA members at the association’s 65th annual general meeting on Wednesday: “We have interacted with the Ministry of Tourism and the Barbados Tourism Product Authority and we have indicated to them that there should be adequate regulation.”

He said just as BHTA hotel members were subject to regulation and tax, “We have advocated very strongly that there should be the creation of a level playing field.” (GC)
