Lost In Space [IT Consultancy]

I am a newbee so please forgive my lack of knowledge of Swiss system.

I am looking for some guidance in terms of taxation, deductions and work laws for independent consultant.

The short story is that I am a US citizen but my wife has an EU B permit. I have an offer by employer in Lausanne to work as an independent consultant.

I have 20 years of IT and management experience what could be a ball park for IT consultancy rates in Lausanne

I can benefit from my spouse "B" permit, and in addition to mandatory health insurance, what other deductions (unemployment, pillars etc) will I encounter

In US a consultant could work and bill directly to the client as independent consultant. Is it possible do so the same in Switzerland. Or do I have to bill through a GMBH company and what are their usual (take) rates.

For example 16000 CHF / month what could be a net take home pay with various deductions.
