Starting residential address for self-employed

Hello again!

I'm an EU-national about to apply for residence in Zug to be self-employed. I've discussed the procedure with the Economic Promotion people and they were very helpful and assure me that it's very straightforward. However I have one chicken-and-egg sort of problem.

To apply for a self-employment B-permit I first have to enter my trading name "John Smith Enterprises" into the commercial register, and the commercial register requires me to supply a Zug address where they can send mail to me. The problem is that I have no fixed address in Zug yet and I'm very reluctant to sign a lease before my permit is actually approved (and the fact that it's hard to find a place at short notice). I haven't yet established the exact requirements of this address but my impression is that it should be either a home or an office.

Does anyone have a tip on how to acquire a suitable address at short notice (days/weeks)? I would be glad to know!

And if anyone would care to offer advice and/or commiserations in exchange for beer I'd be happy to supply the latter at Mr. Pickwick's after work tonight. Leave a note here or call +46 701 040 041 if you're up for it!

Re: Starting residential address for self-employed

The Commercial Register application form should have a section which asks you whether the address is a care-of address or whether you own, or have residence at that address. You will need the permission off the resident is you are using someone elses address. Ask Handelsregister for more details.

Hello Bongolu

I think you could use services like regus

service is called mailbox plus ; 300 CHF for 3 month contract (they do not seem to do monthly contract)

this could be your registered address for the activity
