Registering dogsitting as business

Hello all...

I am starting to make around CHF4.000/month with dog sitting.
I have B permit and it is attached to my spouse who owns C permit.
Do you know if at some point I should register it as solo business? Is there any problem of not doing it? Any recommendation?

Thanks in advance

I can't speak to the admin side, but I would recommend researching liability, and liability insurance, as you decide whether you would be better off in that regard as a business or as a private person.

All the best...

Wow, 4,000 a month from dog walking? Nice!

Maybe you could go to your "Gemeinde" and see if they have some advice.

(P.S. That rhyme was unintentional. ).

I'd say yes, since you should be paying taxes, insurances, pension contributions, etc, out of that income.

Re: Registering dogsitting as business

One argument for becoming a business:

Customers with needs similar to mine (mutts who need special care, either medical or behavioral) tend to put a premium on professionalism. I prefer to engage a sitter who is doing this as a serious business, who has 'skin in the game' so to speak, rather than someone dabbling in dog walking as a side gig, as too many of the latter seem to be unreliable.

If you are looking to grow your clientele, setting up as a professional business goes a long way to get a foothold in one of the more lucrative segments of the market.

Not to mention, many owners prefer the client/service provider relationship to that of employer/employee with all the paperwork hassle.

Again, all the best.
