Short-term let hosts and landlords, including people providing accommodation through online booking platforms like Airbnb, and HomeAway, must sign up to the scheme before 1 October 2023 if they let out property on a short-term basis anywhere across Scotland.
The new rules come into effect from 1 October 2024, but hosts must apply a year in advance if they want to rent out property from October 2025.
