I will move to Switzerland soon. Is there anyone who can tell me what I should do to bring my business there? How will I make this official and how do I pay income taxes?
Thanks in advance...

If I were you, my first trip or phone call about this Sep 10, 2014

would be to the Swiss embassy or consulate in your country. They should be able to give you all the information you need, or at least name reliable sources where you can get it. For things like this, I would think going to the source is your best bet, rather than relying on Proz.

Good luck.
