i sell 4 minim and would like to pay for merchandise and partners etc. This requires lots of accounting and counting etc.
My question is whether this is permitted on Chol Hamoed – nobody specicifically wants it now and all expect it after YT but I prefer to have all payments made etc. asap.
It should wait until after Chol Hamoed. The reason is because it is not needed for Yom Tov, and it involves melacha and a considerable tircha.
