Is a permit required to resell goods bought from New York?

Hi everyone,

I had recently gone to New York for a holiday n ended up shopping a lot. Once I returned to CH, a lot of people appreciated the stuff I had got and wanted to buy it off me. But since m very new to CH, I am not sure if I can resell it here without a permit.
Does reselling come under business and I need a special permit?
I am a teacher on L permit but will that allow me to resell stuff too?
And finally how will I pay my taxes, if I start reselling?

If you're a non-EU national on an L permit I don't think you're allowed to be self-employed here which is sort of what you're be doing by reselling items.

Still here's some info on setting up a business as a non-EU national:

Talk to your local canton migration office for further info.

If you're just selling a couple of pairs of Levi's to some friends just do it . If you're bringing in a container load then you will need to start a business.

If it was more than about $330, did you declare it when you entered Switzerland? (Just wondering...)
