ABN…Australian Business Number

We are registering our house as a rental. We have an Australian tax file number but not an Australian business number. Is it sufficient to have a tax file number or do we need to set up and register a business and get ABN?

booking dot com says we need one to register but we’ve never had a business!

what are peoples thoughts on that.

thanks for your time,

The simple answer is no not needed when it's private and residential,  after everything I just read.


But like the article says everyone's situation can be unique
