PhD fellow getting salary outside CH

Hi!

My salary will be paid from my country of origin (EU), but I will work in a Swiss company as part of a posting between 12-14 months (also live in CH). In other words, I do not expect to earn any money coming from Switzerland.

Will I be free of Swiss taxes?

Thanks in advance.

/Asbjorn

also live in CH
That's the important bit. Otherwise we'd all be paid from Monaco.

I will live and work in CH, but my salary is paid by my home university and the company does not pay me anything.

Will I have to pay taxes in CH even though I am not earning any money there?

Yes, because you pay taxes where you're resident. Check for any dual-taxation agreements between your home country and here to see what the difference might be.

Generally yes, you need to pay taxes if you live in CH.

For a Phd student its a bit different sometimes if you come on a scholarship / stipend from your home country then you have two cases. If the external source pays you directly or sends the money to your university/company to pay you and your lab expenses. In the second case I'm pretty sure taxes would be deducted before you receive the salary, for the first case you need to get the details from the finance department of your swiss employer or tax office in your city canton.
