Re: Self-publishing books - Einzelfirma required?

Thanks a lot for your help eng_ch

I eventually called the SVA to get some clarification, so am posting for anyone else who plans to do something similar in the future.

Would definitely recommend calling the SVA - the lady I spoke to was friendly and patient with my jumbled German. Here's what she confirmed:

1. Selbständig and Einzelfirma are exactly the same thing (as eng_CH said)
2. Any income below 2,300 CHF per year, you need to report on the tax return only. No need to create an Einzelfirma
3. Any income above 2,300 CHF per year, then you need an Einzelfirma and you must sent the required documents

Some further info in english here

Hope this helps someone else
