Opening up a Web Development company in Switzerland

Hi,
I just winded up my company in Australia and want to start over a website, iphone app, software development company in Switzerland. I have a resident permit "B" and no knowledge of German.
Has anyone setup his/her company? How difficult it is? and where could I find the checklist of requirements.

Thanks for help.

Will your customers be local or international?

Thanks for these links.

Both, normally we get clients via website with strong SEO. So it can be international clients as well. I just need to register as a company to get .ch domain and open business bank account.

I believe all you need to do to get started is publish the business name and address with a Handelsregister (publication), and with that, you could open an account. That is all I did for a Post account. No other questions asked.

For the domain, you could always get it privately (ASAP), then transfer it to your business.

Of course, taxation and all that is a different topic.

Well, you should give the question which typo of company you want to set up some thought.. depending on the number of prospective owners, need for privacy, liability issues etc.. Plus, depending on the company type, you've got to make an initial deposit when setting up the company (e.g. 20'000 for a ltd (GmBH)). Althought here are also other options than payment in cash..
