EU with Japanese contract (and Japanese wife!)

Hello everyone,

I'm a French national currently living and working for a Japanese company in Japan.
My job allows to work from home.
I am considering keeping the job, but moving out of Japan (i.e., do this job from outside Japan)

My questions are:

1) can I move to Switzerland and live there, even though my company has no office there ?

(I don't see how my situation could be a problem, since I am not stealing any Swiss jobs...)

2) will my Japanese wife be able to work in Switzerland?

- The simple answer seems to be "yes" according to this topic. However it might be outdated (2008)
EU Permits - A few bullet points

Thanks a lot,

Hi Odeon. I don't know if you still see the post.
As an EU citizen, you can live in Switzerland. Your wife can have a B permit which requires renewal once every five years. With that permit, she can work.
