- So what you are saying is that you are a service provider with only one client - correct? And no corporate entity or anything else is behind this - you are essentially a contractor - correct?
- The lines between being independent and being employed are a bit blurry, if you only have one client, and you have to report regularly to them and there is a relationship of subordination, more often than not you will be considered to be an employee. To illustrate here some explanations concerning sale representatives contracts in English: http://www.employment-law.ch/particu...ives-contracts
- If you are to be considered as an employee - then the social security contributions will have to be paid on both sides - as some are deducted from the salary as well. To be honest, the way you describe your working environment you should be considered as an employee.
- However if you are independent you have to declare and pay them yourself in their entirety. Which could become an issue, as you have been working for 18 months and have apparently declared nothing so far.
- The worst case scenario would be if you are considered a service provider from the EU, do you have a company there? Because that would mean 1. You have an incorrect permit. 2. You have overstayed the legal time period. 3. You have not been declared.
I would get this sorted as soon as possible, otherwise the administrative and legal madness that will follow could become a real headache.
