Move business to CH as a non-EU citizen?

Hi-

Can I move my business to Switzerland as a non-EU citizen? I'd need some type of permit (B or C, I presume) to live here, along with my wife. Preferably, my wife would be able to work as well (I think on a B visa, the spouse can also find employment?)...

I currently employ 6 contractors (two full time). Revenue is around 500-550k annually. It's a small business, but a healthy one.

I read that if you hire Swiss people you can get a visa to live in Switzerland and start a business there. How many people? Does it have to be FT or can you hire contractors?

I'm in the computer consulting business and I want to live in Zurich, or if Zurich isn't possible, somewhere in the German part of Switzerland.

Thank you!
