Internet business from CH allowed?

Hi, I'm starting my own internet business (yes, I can work for myself in CH as I have b-permit and EU citizen etc).

I want to trade on Amazon.com (USA) i.e: buy different types of physical products wholesale (from various parts of the world if applicable) to sell over in USA Amazon marketplace with profits going into my Swiss business account.

I am wondering if this internet trading business is allowed working from Switzerland via internet? i.e: are you legally allowed to buy and sell stuff internationally 'from' my little laptop in CH? anything unlawful about this in CH I need to know about?

Thank you in advance.

Pay your bills.
Don't import anything you shouldn't.
Don't export anything you shouldn't.
And sell to your EF friends at a cost.

We can help you if you offer a bit more detail of which articles you plan to deal with, how you plan to ship and deal with payments to/from the US. Try to keep one thought, there are probably 20 others that either currently do this or have tried and failed.

Re: Internet business from CH allowed?

Hi JC, - thanks - let me re-word, I wasn't specific:

I am wondering if I could get some kind of leaflet or information from somewhere about 'what' we *cannot* buy and sell outside CH. I need a list?

I am NOT importing any goods or touching inventory in Switzerland. I am also not exporting any goods from CH. Everything is 'outside' CH, and handled by FBA (Fulfillment By) Amazon.com (and/or co.uk). I'm organised with re: US physical postal address, invoices etc...all organised.

Just simply want to know what I *can't* do from here in CH in regard to the above.

Cheers

Hi Orca,

I'd like to know if you have carried on your project since 2013.
I'm at a similar stage and would love to chat with you for more info.

Best regards from Zug
