Short-term Rental Registry & myDATA

According to the recent decision of the Independent Public Revenue Authority, the income from each short-term lease should be declared in the Short-Term Rental Registry after the check-out of the tenant. Additionally, all income from every short-term lease must be declared in real-time through the myDATA system.

Cloudkeys takes care of all these requirements, along with issuing receipts and invoices to guests without any additional charge to the property owner.

The process of integration of the property in the “sharing economy” as well as the registration in the registry according to the existing provisions of POL 1187/2017 is fully processed by CloudKeys.

Lease Registration

Our specialized staff registers on the date of departure of the tenant (check-out) all the necessary information in the special registry of AADE. An important obligation of you as the owner and legal administrator of the property is managed by CloudKeys at no charge.

Frequently Asked Questions About Short Term Leasing

The new law by the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Greece (December 2023) requires VAT to be charged on every reservation for property owners who have at least three properties or apartments as vacation rentals.

A vacation rental or short-term rental in the context of this legislation, either through a property management company like Cloudkeys or directly by the owner is every reservation (rental agreement) with a duration of up to 60 days.

More information for this law bill will be provided by Cloudkeys within the new year (2024).

The average income from the properties we manage is over 150% more of the money a property owner could earn from a long-term lease.

The overnight prices for selling an apartment consist of many factors such as area, condition, equipment, seasonal demand, and dozens of other elements that we consider in order to formulate the pricing policy that will maximize income.

Our experienced team helps you maximize the occupancy and increased profitability of your accommodation. Many of our clients have increased their income by 70-200% compared to their previous collaboration with other companies.

CloudKeys’ safety process utilizes safeguards that encourage guests to respect the hosting space and prevent them from causing damage.

Our experience shows that usual property damages include broken glasses (from which we do not ask for compensation) or overloading the electrical or plumbing infrastructures (that usually has to do with the maintenance of the property infrastructure and therefore burdens the owner).

Only in exceptional cases, serious non-compensational damages may occur (either because the guest card does not have enough money or because Airbnb refuses to compensate).

In any case, we recommend insurance coverage for short-term leases. It is an economical solution that covers you in every case.

Cloudkeys hospitality policy does not allow parties in the apartments that belong to its property portfolio.

Apart from building resident and neighbor nuances, there are many issues with large gatherings of people inside an apartment.

Mainly the “wear & tear” caused to the apartment

Cloudkeys has experience in dealing with such issues, from incidents with guests who wanted to host a party without letting us know. There are specific security processes for quickly identifying such intent and to avoid it.

This has never happened to us, but it’s not 100% certain that it can never happen.

If we identify such behavior we always take preventive action – and so far successfully – within the framework of our contractual obligations with short-term rental platforms, civil law and to prevent this from happening.

The law is clear in these cases and there are limited possibilities both from platforms and from the Authorities.

In any case, we recommend that you take out a short-term rental insurance policy and not rely on the platforms’ indemnity guarantees.

Yes and no!

You must prove with evidence that the damage was caused by a particular guest in order for Airbnb to compensate you.

In the highly unlikely scenario of extensive damage with repair costs of high value, an insurance auditor may be required to provide assessment.

It is not always possible to successfully claim compensation, therefore we highly recommend specialized insurance coverage for vacation rental properties by a credible insurance company.

Generally, major damage is highly unlikely. Cloudkeys has welcomed thousands of guests at the apartments within its property portfolio and also provides consulting services concerning hotel management, at hotels that also have hosted thousands of guests.

Typical damages relate to a broken glass of water or a broken dish.

Since the beginning of pandemic, before the government announced the travel restrictions, CloudKeys has been providing specialist equipment to cleaners in order to protect them from any possible contamination while cleaning the apartments

The cleaning process focuses on a more thorough cleaning using cleaners with strong disinfectant action.

We focus on cleaning frequently touched surfaces by our guests and also we have specialized steam cleaning devices that disinfect furniture and surfaces without causing damage of course.

Finally, the ventilation time for each apartment has increased significantly.

In addition, bed linen and towels are cleaned at special facilities using ISO-certified processes, including for COVID-infected items.

No problem! Your property will be registered in the CloudKeys account which has gained a great reputation on the Airbnb platform. This way you will have faster bookings than creating an account from scratch.

According to the recent legislation, every property must be registered in the registry of short-term leases of AADE.

It is clearly necessary to declare income to the tax office. CloudKeys urges all real estate clients to follow the legal path and pay all legal taxes.

It is mandatory to consult with your accountant for the process, as our company does not provide any legal or tax advice and therefore is not specialized in this area.

The payout for Cloudkeys vacation rental property owners is based on confirmed stays or canceled stays with non-refundable cancellation policies that the guest has prepaid prior to his arrival at the property.

All stays are declared on the same day through the MyData system provided by the tax authorities.

According to the new law of December 2017, you can rent your property without a time limit or any restriction in terms of income from short-term leases.

The minimum obligation of owners of properties offered for short-term leases is to declare the property to the tax office through the online application of the Independent Public Revenue Authority (AADE) on the site and to obtain the unique lease registration number

There is no limit to the number of properties you can own as a landlord or tenant for short-term rentals.

You need a separate registration number for each property you own.

Clearly. There are many professionals mainly looking for somewhere to stay for 2-3 months or more and it is difficult to find an apartment with an internet connection without having to transfer the utilities to their name.
