Question about Selbstandigerwerbende [Self-Employment]

Hi
I hope someone can help me to explain this because my husband cant explain to me eventhough he is swiss.
I open my cosmetic studio and i got selbstandigerwerbende and I know that I need to pay AHV according my income but I don't know that I need to pay other tax if I sell product from my studio or what I need to do.
I want to sell product online also and in that case that I need to open company or not?
or I should talk with accountant? Any recommend in Basel?
Thank you

Re: Question about Selbstandigerwerbende

talk with a accountant, if you do not understand that part of business you can get in big trouble

you need to account for everything you buy, invest, sell and do the VAT on that. If you are successful and actually make money you are taxed on that profit (einzelfirma, Gmbh, etc alike)

If your turnover is less then a certain amount (around 100K, I forget the exact amount) you are not obliged to charge MWST (VAT).

I've used this Basel company http://www.stadttreuhand.ch/ to do my company accounts for years. No complaints.
