    Default AirBnB Rates Bills

    AS per https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/a...088&ref=NZH_fb

    I wonder how many landlords are getting unexpected increased bills and find their tenants have a nice little side-line?

    Maybe it's past time councils responded to Maximoron Bradford's electricity reforms?

    Prior to that, businesses paid more for those electrons than domestic consumers.

    What's the justification for Councils charging businesses higher Rates than domestic consumers?

    Oh. Perhaps the IRD will be next in line for a money grab, too?

    Can't have rapacious councils stealing a march on them now, can we?

    Especially as Taxcindarella wants to assure everyone how business-friendly the gummint really is.

    Was looking at a house in Long Bay, Auckland, was curious as to why both the targeted rates are classed as non business, yet they are charging Accommodation Provider rates classed as a business. The rates on the house next door valued the same are $3420.16. Wonder how many will stop.

    Accommodation Provider Targeted Rate - Tier 2 Zone B Capital Value $1,500,000 x 0.00170115 $2,551.73
    General Rate - Urban Business Capital Value $1,500,000 x 0.00512269 $7,684.04
    Natural Environment Targeted Rate - Non Business Capital Value $1,500,000 x 0.00004326 $64.89
    Uniform Annual General Charge Number of separate parts 1 x $414.00 $414.00
    Waste Management - Base Service Number of separate parts 1 x $100.39 $100.39
    Water Quality Targeted Rate - Non Business Capital Value $1,500,000 x 0.00006076 $91.14
    Total rates assessed for 2018/2019 (including GST) $10,906.19

    Now any small business employer who has the misfortune to employ someone impacted by domestic violence, must gift this person another 10 days paid leave. Forever. It does not matter if the employee wasn't the victim, so long as they were impacted by the violence. Nor does it matter if this crime happened decades before they began working for their current employer.

    Once the employee can prove that they have been a victim of domestic violence they are, forever, entitled to be compensated by those employers whose only mistake was to offer them a job and an employer cannot contract out of that right. Which means some employers will quietly avoid employing staff they suspect will seek this new entitlement, limiting the employment options for victims of domestic violence.

    So if you have 2 applicants, one male, one female, you'd tend to choose the male wouldn't you? Women being more affected by domestic violence?

    Only until it becomes illegal to establish their DV status prior to employment, in case you discriminate against them.

    A bit like asking an obviously pregnant woman if she is planning a family.

    Good idea for landlords to take a look at the short term rental sites, set up a search, to see if their places are listed.

    The ever vigilant PIF had this to say couple of months ago about a TT case where the tenant sublet via airbnb -

    'More landlords should ensure their tenants expressly agree not to sublet properties via Airbnb, the New Zealand Property Investors Federation says.'
