Wonder if you can help.
is it necessary to have a government issued licence to rent properties solely as holiday rentals on non holiday complexes?
Thanks for your help

Slightly off topic, but what is a 'non holiday complex'?

Hi sagalout

It used to be the case that short-term rents to holidaymakers needed to e licenced, but the law fell into disuse.

However parliament is currently putting together a bill to tax income received by those renting their properties for short lets online - of which there are an estimated 40,000.

Regards,

Thanks Nigel, I presume the tax would not apply to UK tax payers. (At the moment)

Hi sagalout

The tax WILL apply to UK tax residents, but you can can usually claim tax relief in the UK to get some or all of this tax back. How you claim depends on whether your foreign income has already been taxed.
