Moving a business from London to Switzerland

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, apologies if this is not the right place on this forum to post this as I have looked and not found an exact place to post this, so please bare with me..

I am a self-employed businessman from London. I have my own online business [selling stock across the globe from my website and via the ebay uk portal].

Business is running fine and making money.

As this is an online business, I know the rules and facts of living as a self-employed person here in London, what I need to pay, how it works etc.

The question I have is, transferring what I have here and coming over to Switzerland. My fiancee has a contract in Switzerland which is for a few years and she is going to be based there. I can run my business from anywhere in the world. The stock that I have doesn't require much space and as I import it from other countries, it can be arranged to import it into Switzerland instead of London. What are the complications with this? If any?

How strict are the authorities for importing? Reselling? Postage for parcels across Europe and ROW?

I know I am asking for a lot of information here but after extensive research myself, all the answers are not as clear. I have a fair idea but from people living the same kind of life in Switzerland, hearing a view from first hand would be apprecaited.

A few facts to consider for myself:
Turnover currently in the region of £60k a year.
Have a Limited Company Registered here in UK.
Business Bank Accounts in UK.
As my business is run from a standalone website as well as ebay, 40% of earnings are made through ebay uk, with paypal all registered here in UK linked to my business accounts.

Any help is appreciated. If you need any further info then please ask.

Thanks for your time
