Self-employed/Individual Entrepreneur in canton Schwyz

Hello everyone!

I am considering opening a business by myself here in Switzerland. GmbH is not in the table right now, I want to see first if the business is viable, and then migrate to it.

I saw several threads saying that for self-employed, one needs a C permit? Or maybe there is a difference between self-employed and Individual Entrepreneur in the threads I was reading? My husband opened last year with a friend a KLG (Kollektivgesellschaft - company without the limited liability) with a B permit. I was wondering if there is anything similar, but for one person. Can anyone clear this up for me?

Thank you.

B is fine, no idea where you read that a C was required.


This may also help you

It depends if you are EU or not, if you are not EU information is here, which is where I am guessing you are getting the C permit information from.


Only holders of a valid C permit (settlement permit for third-country nationals), the spouse of a C permit holder or the spouse of a Swiss citizen have the legal right to establish their own business in Switzerland.

All other persons have no legal right to set up their own business. They must submit an application to the respective cantonal authorities. Apart from the necessary personal requirements, it is decisive in the evaluation that the company will have a "lasting positive effect or influence on the Swiss labour market".

A lasting positive effect on the Swiss labour market is considered to be given if the new company or self-employed person contributes to the industry-specific diversification of the regional economy, preserves or creates several jobs for local staff, makes substantial investments and generates new orders for the Swiss economy.
