atikin has no particular reputation at present
EU citizen employed by German company

Hi there,

Firstly - apologies if this topic has been discussed to death, but I can't seem to find anything akin to my scenario.
  • I'm currently in possession of a German passport and am residing in London (UK). I speak German fluently, but have never lived in Germany.
  • I'm looking to join a small start-up as an IT consultant, however, this business is registered in Germany (Munich).
  • I'll be working from home in Switzerland, or from client sites - which could be based absolutely anywhere (in or out of Switzerland).
  1. If I have an agreed contract in place with this company, will I be able to reside in Switzerland (Zurich), even when the company has no Swiss presence?
  2. Is there any tax benefit to being paid in Germany vs. being paid in Switzerland?

Any support or guidance on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Re: EU citizen employed by German company

As the holder of a German passport you can live wherever you want in the EU and Switzerland.

The question may be whether you are considered as self-employed or not for residency/tax/insurances purposes. I don't know much about that side of things so hopefully others here will have more info for you.
