Has anyone figured out how Airbnb manages to get away with not issuing legal tax invoices, given they collect Australian GST on their service charge, but they fail to provide a holistic invoice for all items purchased and paid for through them leaving it to the poor host to issue a tax invoice for the accommodation and cleaning parts of the bill?

They are incorporated in Ireland, but somehow collect GST for Australian members, but say for an NZ properly, fail to collect NZ GST for the accommodation or service charge.

Agoda on the other hand issues a receipt with advice that the total for an NZ property including 15% New Zealand GST.

(I own an Australian company that has a NZ subsidiary that can claim the NZ GST for business travel)

I don't know either. I'm confused about the GST amount that I can enter when putting the invoice into my system.

Seems to be a whole host of processes mentioned in this similar discussion without resolution on AirBNB. The answer seems to be setup a AirBNB business account and manage that. Doesn't specify that the required tax invoice format is then support.

It actually adds to the cost of using AirBNB and therefore reduces their competitiveness. All we want is a tax invoice in a complying format. Yes, they are located in Ireland and according to Travel Trends there are 180,000 properties in Australia. I'm sure some silicon valley accountant could put their mind to it (when they have finished protecting the international profit transfers between tax havens).
