Registering as entrepreneur - How to?

I have a regular day job, however on the side I'm passionate about movement, am qualified to teach some methods and have started doing so on a casual basis. I intend for this to grow.

I teach some evenings at a studio, and the studio owner has told me to register as an entrepreneur with AHV? This is just so that things are all above board and nice and official-like.

I'm all for this, but a little stumped as to what I need to do, and what terminology I need to understand - Mercantile Law isn't my strength.

Is someone who has been through this able to point me in the right direction?

Many thanks.

It is social security law.

And here the place where you have to register:

Once you make a turnover of CHF 100k per year you must also get a commercial registry entry and a pay/charge VAT.

The Ausgleichskasse Zug provides an overview of the self-employment status at this link (German):

Re: Registering as entrepreneur - How to?

do you guys know if it's possible, if someone still plans to keep her/his full-time job? (which will still keep paying the social contributions)
He also mentioned a regular job; and I would be in the same shoes.
I would guess some percentage (e.g.20%) should be defined for the sole propretiorship even above the 100%; but would be nice if it's not a must, and only tax would have to be considered for the revene made as an enterprenour.. thx
