Question

Has anybody rented their private spaces via Arbnb here in Belgium and knows how to go about? I filled everything out on the website, but now they suggest that I make sure to get clearance from the authorities. Is this applicable here?

That it?

Looks like you need to be registered.

Yes, you have to get clearance from the region.

It's a set of regulations specifically designed to discourage people from offering their homes / rooms on AirBnB.

They want to make it financially uneconomic and a pain administratively.

Completely unnecessary red tape, but hey!, that's what we pay our taxes for.

Thank you for the info! Wow, that's a bummer! They indeed do everything possible to discourage people from renting out their private space...

Depends where you live. Flanders is reasonable. Brussels is difficult.
