Working in UK/resident in Switzerland

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help. I am working in the Zurich area but will only spend 5 days a month (on average) in Switzerland. I am based in the UK with frequent travel elsewhere. How am I best to go about not paying into the Swiss social system e.g. tax/pension etc

Re: Working in UK/resident in Switzerland

Who are you working for & what permit do you have?

Re: Working in UK/resident in Switzerland

What permit do you have and who employs you? A Swiss employer or UK or elsewhere? There are double-taxation agreements between the UK and Switzerland.

The OP will probably have a tax liability in both jurisdictions, UK tax will likely be higher.
