Do I need to register an Instagram business?

Hello there, this is my first time posting a thread so I hope Iím in the right section haha

I have been living in Switzerland (Port, Biel) for a year and enjoy baking. I was thinking of selling some baked goods (Cookies, Brownies, Cupcakes etc.) via Instagram.

My question is do I need to register the business?

Iím not looking to make this a full time job, just something to do whilst out of work.

Any advice will be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance 😊

Think your first thoughts should be food hygiene regulations and complying with all that jazz!

Re: Do I need to register an Instagram business?

It does not really matter if itís an online business or not the considerations are the same:

- Do you have a permit that entitles you to establish a self-employed business
- What are the health and safety regulations you need to comply with
- Public liability issues, what happens if someone gets sick and decides to take you to court

Also, if you're renting your property, is the landlord/agency okay with you running such a business from there?
