Social Security Rates on Furnished Lettings

Airbnb has become a very successful online platform and that has obliged governments to revise social security regulations on the rental income from furnished lettings. Uber and Airbnb have become a real problem for the French government. There have been complaints that it is unfair because certain people are losing out because of it.

Key Takeaways:

  • If your income from furnished lettings is less than €23,000 a year (or €5,100 for a chambre d’hôte) there is no change
  • Where your income from the short-term letting of furnished accommodation is greater than €23,000 a year (or greater than €5,100 for a chambre d’hôte), you are now required to register as a business
  • If you are already registered with the social security system as a salaried employee, you have the choice of continuing to operate without business registration and simply pay social security contributions through the main general regime

“On-line platforms such as Airbnb and Uber are becoming a huge headache for the French government”
