Short-term rentals, Cin arrives. Fines of up to 8 thousand euros are foreseen for those who do not expose it


The national identification code must be shown in the facility and online, under penalty of fines starting from a minimum of 800 euros up to 8 thousand. The obligation to equip the rented property with safety requirements such as fire extinguishers and gas detectors is limited: it will only be up to landlords “who manage in entrepreneurial forms”

Breakthrough on the issue of short-term rentals. The Senate Budget Committee gives the green light to the rapporteurs’ amendment to the advances decree which introduces the National Identification Code (Cin) for tourist rentals. This is essentially an anti-evasion measure to combat the underground economy present in this sector.

There are also fines of up to 8 thousand euros for those who do not possess it or do not display it, but not only. Let’s see in detail what it is.

Ok to subamendment for security requirements

Instead, the obligation to equip the rented property with safety requirements such as fire extinguishers and gas detectors is limited, with the approval of a sub-amendment first signed by Ronzulli (Fi): it will only be up to landlords “who manage in entrepreneurial forms” . However, the proposal contained in the same sub-amendment to allocate any additional revenue from emerging from the black economy to the tax reduction fund does not pass.

How to get it

Daniela Santanché’s Ministry of Tourism awarded the Cin. Owners must submit a specific request electronically. This is accompanied by a substitute declaration which must contain the cadastral data of the property. The Code falls within the conversion law of the Advances Decree.

The necessary equipment

For landlords who, as required by the amendment approved by the Budget Committee, manage the business “in entrepreneurial forms”, safety requirements are one of the fundamental issues. It is the owners themselves who have to certify compliance with the rules, which are evaluated based on State and Regional regulations. In the foreseen cases, devices for the detection of combustible gases and carbon monoxide, in addition to portable fire extinguishers, become necessary within the rented spaces. The latter must be in accessible places close to the most at-risk areas.

Fines of up to 8 thousand euros

The Cin must be displayed in homes that are rented, but must also be present in online advertisements. Sanctions chapter: fines are heavy for those who do not comply with the legislation that will be introduced. The absence of a code for those who sign up for short-term rentals or for those who own hotel facilities can result in a fine of up to 8 thousand euros, with a minimum fine of 800 euros. The figure also depends on the structure and size. Failure to display the code, even if you have it, is also considered punishable. Anyone who “forgets” to display the Cin can be punished with fines ranging from 500 to 5 thousand euros.
