the credit card processing has nothing to do with taxation. If you live in a place where services are taxed, then the tax needs to be added (or be included) now, regardless of whether you accept credit cards or not. I live in North Carolina where services at this time are not subject to a tax but products are.
It does not matter to Square which account you designate for deposits. I have a business account, though, for all my business transactions.
Hi Dianne. Like Karin, I use Square for my business as well. I like it for its simplicity, ease of use and portability. Having it with me puts me on par with any brick and mortar business that accepts credit cards. While I don’t necessarily advertise that I use it (because of the processing fees), if asked, I gladly tell my clients that this is an option.
I use it and really like it. However, I use it much more for selling some products than for personal training, though.
Yes, you have to have a business set up because you will have to provide all the relevant information when you sign up with Square.
