If you have a cottage or holiday home rental, you may wonder as to how other owners like you are getting on. Whilst meeting visitors from all over the world is the biggest perk in letting for many, you probably have questions about insurance, public liability, taxation? You may have problems getting cleaning and maintenance staff? Did you know for example that holiday home owners provide more bed nights to tourism than hotels, yet we don’t hear too much about that! And do you feel like ringing Live Line every time you get hot under the collar when you hear about the removal of the 9% VAT rate or about legislation and new rules for short term letting, but feel powerless to change?
That is what the ISCF was formed for – as a lobby and support group for all of us working in the self-catering accommodation sector. The Irish Self Catering Federation’s annual conference takes place in Dublin on November 13th and is the perfect opportunity to network with owners who are new to the business or in it for decades. Why not attend because you will hear from some excellent speakers and presenters who we have invited to speak and exhibit because they are relevant to us, the owners.
It is not a long day, there is parking at the venue Clayton Hotel Liffey Valley, Dublin and it will be the best €50 euro (to include lunch) you will spend! (€30 for ISCF members) If you are around the night before on Monday 12th join us an informal drinks reception. All the details are here iscf.ie/conferences/.
Never has it more important to rally as a group to protect your business income. Please lend your voice and support to the Federation at this uncertain time. You can do this by referring other self caterers to ISCF and attending the Conference on the 13th November where time will be given to plan our next submission to Maria Bailey, Chairperson of the Joint Committee on Housing, Planning & Local Government.
Join the conversation to actively engage in making a change, Stronger Together!
