Airbnb digital service provider or real estate brokerage?
French tourism association claims Airbnb should face same accounting, insurance and financial obligations than real estate brokerage as its services are changing the face of neighbourhoods and need to be more heavily regulated.
Airbnb, which is registered in Ireland, argues that its commercial activities in matching property owners with people seeking accommodation could not be regarded as traditional providers of real estate. France is Airbnb’s largest market after the US, and Paris is its biggest single city market, with about 65,000 homes listed.
A person from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) said the company should be regarded as a digital service provider with the right to operate freely across the EU.
