Thanks AbFab. I did search the forums and read many threads but it looked that my situation was unique in that my wife had no prior AHV card or job and she has a work permission. In fact, I learned quite a lot from your answers to other threads.

Referring to point 2 below: Do you still need to register as self-employed when your B-permit says "mit Erwerbstätig."?

Point 5: Before you reach the limit for VAT (whatever is current), you do not charge VAT to your clients?

Thanks again.
2) Yes. Being self-employed means one is paying ones own AHV and social costs. This is vital to potential employer/clients, or they could be liable for these.

5) No. You can't collect VAT and put it in your pocket!

By the way, I cannot see any point in forming a company AG/GmbH. It seems total over-kill...
