EU- B permit: can I do both in Switzerland: to be employed and self employed?

I am an EU-B permit holder and I am in train of setting-up a one-person business (small projects in architecture, interiors, etc.). I will send my documents to the SUVA this week and I am preparing a business plan for the Canton along with the other proofs of establishing a company.
A company based in Sion is considering engaging me at 100%. I will gladly accept their offer but I don't want to abandon my self-employment activity. I have different clients than that company and I won't "steal" their clients.

Is it possible in Switzerland to work for someone as a salaried person and to be self-employed?

Many thanks for your answers and the links also would be welcome.

You can be partially self employed in CH, so a 100% job is no problem! You have to pay a minimium AHV contributions of approx 475 chf for earnings above approx 2500 to 9k or ther abouts..

Many thanks for your answer, fatmanfilms.
May I ask you the question: the amount of earnings of 2500-9000CHF is for which period? A month, quarter of a year, or a year?

Again, many thanks.

Yes IF your employer agrees (in writing).
