Why not just tell your tenants clients to leave cash deposits? You can leave it in envelope for them to sort, or they can just leave their card machine of salon in they don’t have cash.
Can’t think how you would do it over phone though.
My renters have separate till, their own card machine. There is no way they could be looked at as an employee.
My contracts have my expectations in there. If renter doesn’t agree then the contract wouldn’t be signed by them or me.
Never had a problem.
I own a salon and I’m quite strict with my renters. I tell them in advance what I expect ( work my hours, no groupon etc) they then have the choice to accept or not.
It’s YOUR name above the door and regardless of her rights the buck ultimately stops with you x
