[Link] Information about the guest tax in Basel
Most hotels are completely booked out during the BASELWORLD exhibition. There are, however, many exhibiting companies who prefer a personal home to which they can escape during their free time from the hustle and bustle of the exhibition.
Why not take advantage of the opportunity which could arise for you from this – plan a holiday so that you can sub-let your apartment during the watch and jewellery show BASELWORLD. In this way, you can pay a part of the cost of your holiday from the income of the rent.
Advertise your apartment with us for free. In addition, we do not retain customers – you are free to rent out your apartment privately or through other channels.
You can benefit of the scarceness of accommodation during BASELWORLD in order to fulfil your holiday dreams, but please do not take advantage of the situation. A fair renting price offers you both - to increase your holiday budget and to have satisfied guests at the same time.
The UMS Pricing system aims to create a solid price/performance ratio for all participants and to adhere to the regulations of the Swiss rental law.
As a prefered parter for apartments for BASELWORLD, we attach great importance to a fair rent and even turn down the occasional deal in honour of that commitment. We do this not only out of an obligation to our seekers, but also to protect you as a provider.
If you sub-let your apartment at a profit, your landlord can demand the entire profit – even retroactively. One tenant was ordered by the federal court to pay his landlord CHF 189,032 (BGE 4A_594/2012).
If you make a profit from the rent you charge – as the property owner or with the landlord’s approval – or provide substantial services (e.g. cleaning, breakfast, etc.) for a fee, you must declare the earnings as additional income on your tax return.
Yes, sub-tenants who are not registered with the municipality must pay a guest tax (as the tourist tax is called in Basel). But this is quite easy and inexpensive.
UMS Exhibition Service is right for you if you intend to let, lease or sublease an apartment, a house, a flat or a studio during BASELWORLD or if you have several flats, apartments or houses to rent for BASELWORLD or if you are offering another kind of short-term accommodation during The Watch and Jewellery Show BASELWORLD.
