Opening online store to sell Protein products

Hi guys,

I'm opening up a small online store - I sell protein supplements. Only a few, like 4 different products.

What do I need to obtain/pay/do to make it legal? As I think if I do it right now without a number or something it's kind of illegal

Anyone help me? Is it a yearly payment for a "license" to sell online?

Any help appreciated

you may go to ebay to read their terms and conditions, especially about tax part.

Re: Opening online store to sell Protein products

If you are already paying tax in CH then just make sure you do proper book keeping and pay tax on what you sell (think also of mswt if this is relevant). I guess you're also importing so as long as you follow these rules you are also ok (i.e. don't smuggle it in over the border in your suitcase).

If you are not working/paying tax in CH then I think you need to follow the normal rules on setting up as a sole trader first with the SVA etc.

Re: Opening online store to sell Protein products

Hi Nig

I'm buying locally - basically re-selling and yes I'm paying tax already

So I don't have to register anything in this case?

Yes I'd recommend you set up an account with ebay and link to paypal, after that each customer deals with you at his risk - "caveate emptor"

Re: Opening online store to sell Protein products

You should register at least as an Einzelfirma. It is very simple.

If you have revenues of more than 100K a year you should also register for VAT.
