B permit = resident in Switzerland = no legal chance.

If you're resident here you pay VAT here.

Not sure if serious.

I mean... really?

Absolutely. It's exactly the same process that you use when you claim your VAT back for your daily shop at Migros and Coop.

You can actually do this pretty easily.

Buy your stuff in Foxtown.
Keep the receipt and once your next visitor from UK flies back home, let him claim back the VAT.
This visitor will then bring all stuff to the next person visiting you.
Then that person will take all stuff back to Switzerland.

Given that the import limit is 300 CHF and VAT 8%, you can save 24 CHF like this.
If you use some visitors that you don't like anyway, tell them all the hassle is for 24 CHF and you will never see them again.
