Legal News [September 2021]: Airbnb provides accommodation services, not rentals

The Municipal Court in Prague has decided that short-term rentals made through Airbnb fall within accommodation services, and thus have to be taxed as a business activity. The Supreme Court found that the excessive duration of a legal dispute constitutes a rebuttable presumption of immaterial damage which should be compensated.
