Sole proprietorship and unemployment insurance
I've read related posts for the last 3 hours with very useful information, but did not find a definite answer for the following question.
I am currently in "chomage" since I've left my corporate career, and doing photography work as a side job for now. I have started receiving serious orders, so I was wondering what to do.
I understand that the best way is to register as Sole proprietorship owner of my photography brand. My questions are:
1 - Do I have to declare "Sole proprietorship" to sell e.g. prints of my photos or shoot a wedding? Cannot I just declare the income in my yearly tax declaration?
2- If I do declare, would I lose my unemployment benefits? My total yearly income would definitely be lower than 100'000 CHF - therefore I will not have to register to the registry of commerce for this year.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
