As you all know, our team of bloggers are well-versed and, even, veteran Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies. However, from time to time a question from a flustered Sugar Baby or Sugar Daddy will have us stumped. Particularly if the question posed has to do with international affairs. A few days after Christmas, a lovely, blonde Sugar Baby approached me via our Facebook page. We will name her Regina, for privacy’s sake. Here is what had Regina in a bind:
I have been a Sugar Baby for almost 2 years now and I have got a big problem. I live in Switzerland. In Switzerland, if you aren’t employed, then the state gives you money. They also pay your rent apartment or flat–up to 20 square feet. Due to this problem I am not allowed to rent a bigger house. In addition, I am unable to get a car (because if I purchase a car over 30,000 they would become suspicious, as to where I got the money from).
I’m really lost. Thanks to my Sugar Daddy I have about 23,000 on the side but I can’t do anything with it! It makes me really sad because I’d love to rent a bigger house and look further!
My Question now is: What can I say to the government, that they’ll free me out of this “welfare” (it is not called that here in Switzerland, but I do not know a better word). I know I’d have to start paying taxes and I am willing to do so. I’ve got more than two Sugar Daddies at a time and I’m sure that I can take care of myself even with paying the tax!
We usually are able to offer a bit of wisdom for the Sugar Baby in need; however this one has us pulling up the legal books and FAQs. In the meantime, does anyone know what Regina should do? In America, you can simply file the monetary Sugar as gifts since that is what they are. Blog readers: Is anyone familiar with Swiss laws or taxation requirements? We commend Regina on trying to do the right thing. All Sugars should abide by all standards of the law. However, I know how awkward it feels having to call a financial advisor and explaining your situation, particularly for a young Sugar Baby who hasn’t yet developed an iron stomach for naysayers.
In the meantime: What route should Regina take? What is the best way to pay taxes on your Sugar in Switzerland?
