Self employment for EU citizens.


I have been scouting this forum for quite some time. Have found many interesting information, but would like to create a new thread. One that could help EU citizens on how to self-employ in Switzerland.

I am a EU citizen in Switzerland, with two costumers from around the world, and with activity mounted in another European country. One of the employers is even willing to grant me support and give me a contract, but it's from outside Switzerland.
So.. I have an L permit, and haven't found any potential employer in Switzerland willing to accept me in their workforce (language perhaps?). So, I need to understand how the self-employment registration and it's common obligations work.
  1. Self Employment Registration
  2. Social Security (AVH I think) minimum obligations expectations
  3. Helth Insurance and Accident insurance are both compulsory and mandatory?
  4. Tax amount (both income and VAT, thou VAT it's for over then a specific amount of earnings I've already understood that)

Any other necessary thing I should be aware of?

You might think "why does he needs to be in CH?" My other half has got a job here, and I want to help her, as we've been together for quite some years for now.
