Tell me how to do everything officially? t. I have 2 garages in a garage cooperative, I want to make a mini-bath out of garages and rent it out for rent. But the question arises how to do it all legally, i.e. you need to transfer the garage to non-residential is it generally real?

The garage is a favorite leisure and hobby place for men. And some especially entrepreneurial ones turn it into a real business center, actively earning money and combining the useful and the pleasant.

How to open a garage business correctly

First of all, you need to decide whether the garage is in the private personal property of the future entrepreneur (for example, a garage on the territory of your own land plot, next to an individual residential building or right in it) or in a garage cooperative, a complex. In the latter case, before implementing working small business ideas in the garage, you will have to deal with formal issues. Namely, by agreeing with higher authorities on the procedure for using the garage territory allocated to the owner. As a rule, a set of measures includes:

  • registration of a long-term (unlimited) lease or purchase of premises into ownership;
  • putting out a separate electrical panel, automatic machine and registering equipment in your name;
  • coordination of formalities with the Ministry of Emergencies in the field of fire regulation. Most likely, the windows will need to be equipped with bars, change the wiring to a safe one, install fire extinguishers and undergo regular checks.

  • LLCs have no right to spend funds from the company's accounts, only profit remaining after taxation and their own wages;
  • Any salary can be assigned, not lower than the minimum region. But with a high salary, you will have to transfer significant amounts of taxes, pension and insurance contributions, and these are additional costs;
  • Legal entities must keep accounting records and submit a balance sheet. That is, in the absence of skills and knowledge, the company needs an accountant. This is also a waste.

If, nevertheless, the form of registration of an LLC is chosen, simplified systems - UTII or STSN will become the optimal tax regime.
