Sharing my flat (sublet ?)

Hello,

I have researched the forum a little bit (on "sublet") but could not answer my questions

I am going to share my flat (in ZH) with another foreigner

My landlord is ok with that but does not want to do any paperwork.

So I thought, the future flatmate would still need some piece of paper to be able to register at the kreisburo.

On my side, a sublet contract can give me some legal basis for rent, degradations ... (I was in a flatshare before and I had to sign a contract for the room.)

Apart from the pain of filling these papers in german , do you see any other pros/cons ?
If I sublet a room in my flat, do I have to pay tax on the payments received ?
Do you know the procedure ?

I will continue searching the forum meanwhile since I'm convinced this has been already discussed.

Many thanks

Make sure your roommate has insurance that covers the household stuff. Will save you allot of arguing.
