In which order to file?

Hi, folks,

I'm new on this forum. Of course I have questions... :-)

I am a EU citizen that would like to move to CH and open a GmbH (contracting). So where do I start? I'm feeling this is a bit of a catch-22. I assumed the following order and please correct me if I'm wrong:

1) file for the work permit (not sure if I can do this without and address, i.e. #2)
2) find a place to say (with the permit)
3) open GmbH

I have a couple of contracts lined up. Is it a problem if they are with foreign companies, but I'll do the work out of CH?

Thanks,
klaus

Re: In which order to file?

Welcome to the forum.

A GmbH needs to have one person who is a) resident here and b) authorised to sign on behalf of the company. However, that person does not need to be you (ie you can pay/bully someone else to be that person).

Have you checked out this site? They say that they can put you in touch with someone who will act as your Swiss resident. If they're too expensive, send me a PM.

There's no problem working for foreign companies out of Switzerland. They will need to pay reverse charge VAT.

Hi, Jeno,

Thanks for your reply. I would like to get the residence in CH and control the GmbH - so the original questions are still valid - where do I start?

I have seen the web site you mentioned, but my questions are not answered there either. I will eventually employ somebody to help me with all this and I will PM you when the decision is made firm.

Thanks,
klaus

Re: In which order to file?

Start with the permit in that case. You'll need to provide things like a business plan and evidence of sufficient funding to set up the company with. See these:

https://www.ch.ch/en/becoming-self-employed/

http://www.kmu.admin.ch/kmu-gruenden...x.html?lang=en

Note that if you're a Bulgarian or Romanian citizen you are not allowed to be self-employed. This is because of the quota limits which are in place until 2016 at the latest.

"All citizens of EU/EFTA countries - currently still with the exception of Romania and Bulgaria - are legally entitled to freely live and work in Switzerland. This means that they can also become self-employed."

http://www.kmu.admin.ch/kmu-gruenden...x.html?lang=en

This would also apply to your company wanting to hire you as well. The company would need to prove it can't find a Swiss/EU national who could do the job.

Thanks for your answer. I'm the EU-25 citizen, not of Bulgaria or Romania. So this would work in this case.

Best,
klaus
