Hey Airbnb entrepreneurs, are you legal?
Some of our clients are in hot water for renting through Airbnb in Quebec, getting fines from $2,500 to 50K.
You’re exposed if you regularly and publicly rent a property for less than 31 days.
what this really means is that Revenue Quebec can:
– investigate you if they find your rental ad on AirBnB
– show up and match the pictures you’ve posted with their onsite visit
– use your hard-earned reviews against you as proof of your renting
The same rules apply whether you own or rent the property.
Don’t let your rental business evaporate into thin “Air”.. . you may need a permit.
