Permit to live in CH with an EU employer

First post here . I have read a lot of threads and searched here for "Dienstleistungserbringer" without success. Apologies in advance if I have missed the answer somewhere

Can I get a resident permit as an EU citizen, with a job with an EU employer where I can work from home (in CH), only occasionally needing to travel to the office in the EU location? I have no specific business interactions (e.g. customers) in CH. What type of permit would that be, B? And for what length would that be issued?

Is this providing a service/Dienstleistungserbringer EU/EFTA (which seems limited to 90 days) or is that something else?

Re: Permit to live in CH with an EU employer

Yes. As an EU national you have the right to live anywhere in the EU that you want and should be able to work for a company outside of Switzerland with no problems. You'll just need to prove your financial solvency/employment to the Swiss authorities and get a permit issued. If you know where you want to live then check further with the cantonal migration office that the place is located in.

Note however that as you have only one employer you will not be seen as providing a service/contractor, but as an employee of that company and the Swiss authorities may expect that company to pay certain taxes/insurances on behalf of their employee. You may need to think about setting up a company here in Switzerland which then employs you to be hired out to your other company. Your Swiss company would then be responsible for the various taxes/insurances.

Re: Permit to live in CH with an EU employer

Thanks! I am intending that my employment in this way (EU employer) is just an interim step while I find a Swiss employer. So I tried to register for a permit (at the Gemeinde the person just chose "B-EU/EFTA" for me without even asking), but MA sent me a letter refusing the permit (& a please leave CH within 30 days note) on the grounds of it not qualifying due to service provider nature. (I'm not sure where they got this service provider part from). I will contact them to explain further, thank you.

Re: Permit to live in CH with an EU employer

Here's more on the short term registration for service providers.

https://www.bfm.admin.ch/bfm/en/home...verfahren.html

Don't know your exact situation of course, but if you're effectively an employee of this company then they need to send you to Switzerland to work on a particular project, you can't just turn up and register as a service provider as you found out. And self-employed service providers need to be doing work for a Swiss company I believe, not an EU one.

As you want to move here permanently that's not the route to take. You will need to approach the cantonal migration office where you plan to base yourself here and show them your financial situation and employment contract with your EU employer and tell them this is a permanent move for you and not just you providing a service. You'll also be looking for a Swiss employer in the near future. They'll then decide if you are eligible for a permit or not. As said, you may need to think about setting up as a self-employed person here with your own company.
