L-Permit for an EU contractor
British National. Working as a contractor. With no end date and a daily rate.
Living in Kanton Zug and working for a Swiss company in Kanton Zurich. My payroll agent is not the company I am working for. They are a worldwide known agent.
In July, I have been given an L-Permit instead of B that I was expecting.
The reason was explained as;
1 - Having a contract with a non-Swiss company (come on, they have multiple offices here and they are the agent only. I cannot sign a contract directly with the Swiss company I am working for)
2 - and more importantly, my contract has a daily rate instead of a monthly salary (what??? contractors are working for hourly or daily rates, how can they expect me to have a monthly salary as a contractor???)
Reading the other posts, I understood that being given L instead B is something that has happened to others too.
My questions are,
1 - is the daily-rate thing a superficial obstacle that Kanton Zug invented for me?
2 - Can I expect to get a B in June 2015, when the current L expires?
3 - Will I apply for an extention or will they provide the one when the time comes?
OK, the company I am working for is going to offer me a permanent position once the internals are sorted out but I am quite happy with being a contractor for obvious reasons... and would like to postpone being a permanent as long as possible. So, could you please assume that nothing will be changed in my situation while helping with the questions?
