Bermuda Vacation Rental Fee
New legislation requires that all current vacation rental properties must:
- Register with the Bermuda Government by July 27, 2018
- Collect and remit a 4.5% Vacation Rental Fee to the Bermuda Tourism Authority
Registration is free, and can be done via the Government portal here VACATION RENTAL REGISTRATION(VRP)
The 4.5% Vacation Rental Fee is charged on the nightly rate of the rental – a sum identical to the already existing Tourism Authority Fee, which is collected from guests at licensed hotel and guest houses.
This fee is applied on all new bookings made on or after September 1st. Any pre-existing bookings , regardless of travel period, are exempt.
Payments are due within two weeks after the end of each month. Collected fees, which are allocated for marketing Bermuda, must be paid directly to the Bermuda Tourism Authority.
Once registered, the Bermuda Tourism Authority will provide payment details directly to each vacation rental property owner/manager.
