Help with business plan

Hi,

I've been working as an IT contractor and decided to take some time off (a few months.)
I moved from Zurich to schaffhausen who need a business plan from me to register as I'm considered selbststandig, I'm not sure what to do here as I only wanted to take the time off and go back to work. They didn't tell me what I needed from the business plan so I'm a bit stumped. Can anyone give me some advice.

Cheers

This PDF is how UBS might see it. It's available on their website:

I'm not saying you need all that for the canton, but it might give you a starting point.

If I am decoding OP correctly, he wants to register as living in Schaffhausen now, and it's the Gemeinde that wants a business plan in order to allow him to register as self-employed? Maybe?

Re: Help with business plan

Guess I'm the only one who understood what he meant. Clever me.

SW, I think the problem here is that you, I assume, have been self-employed in Zurich where you lived and now that you're in Schaffhausen you need to register there and they want you to provide them with a business plan for your work. What did you do when you became self-employed in Zurich? Presumably you would have needed to provide the same sort of information to have the right permit to be self-employed. Schaffhausen will want the same sort of info I would guess.

Re: Help with business plan

Hi all,

yes, should have mentioned it's to register with the gemeinde. I was previously working through an agency who handled everything so I didn't need a business plan for that.

Depending on the size of business it could be anything from 100.00 to 100,000.00 or even more.

But if it's your own small business, you really should be doing it yourself.

Re: Help with business plan

To register as self employed you simply need to show your local tax office, usually in the same building as the Gemeinde, a couple of invoices and quotes to show that you are trading or just about to. If in doubt ask, they are usually very helpful.

The above link in English give lots of help and guidance. OK it is for Basel but you could copy the guidelines for the business plan. The one I wrote was even simpler (one page).

I have just become self employed as a freelance marketeer after 10 years out of employment and now aged over 50. (this is a shameless advert in return for info)

regards

Annie
