Setting up sole trader internet business from CH

Hi All - I'm new to the forum and new to CH!

My husband got a job recently in Zurich and we are now living in Zug. We have B permits each and resident fully here in Zug.

I'm keen to work and set up an internet business from home with a global reach.

My question is - I read that to register as a sole trader in CH you have to have your actual personal name WITH the business name. This gives me problems with my online website domain name which I don't want to change. The question is, can I trade under 'myownname+service' (so all accounts, payments etc go through 'myownname+service' and keep the domain.com for 'marketing purposes' i.e. the domain.com is 'owned' by myownname+service'...?

Also, I need a PO box address for US CANSPAM regulations if using an email software third party company from US - so is getting a PO box cheap in CH and does anyone have an address/ tel number of how to get this set up in Zug? Is it with post office?

Many thanks for help in advance!

Hi there, a lot of your plan will depend on your nationality - if you are not an EU citizen, you may not be allowed to work independently. Having set up more than one business here, I may be able to help with more info but am away this week, PM me if you'd like to chat
