Airbnb paid £188,000 in UK tax last year
Airbnb, the accommodation website, paid less than £200,000 in UK corporation tax last year despite collecting £657m of rental payments for property owners. Airbnb said in a statement: "We follow the rules and pay all the tax we owe." Airbnb said: "Our UK office provides marketing services and pays all applicable taxes, including VAT. The Airbnb model is unique and boosted the UK economy by £3.46bn last year alone." Bruno Le Maire, the French finance minister, has also asked why Airbnb paid tens of thousand of euros in French corporation tax despite a turnover in the millions. In the UK last year Airbnb catered for 5.9m travellers and had 168,000 listings.
