Re: moving from employed to self-employed

Thanks for the responses. Richard is the CHF492 minimum on a monthly or anual basis - I think I know but just want the bad news confirmed ...

miniMia, thanks for the tip. I'll check on the courses as this could be a good route for me. Another question I have is what constitues self employed status. Certainly in the first few months the bulk of my time will be spent on non-income generating activities, and attending a part time course at EPFL. Does this make me a part time student and part time unemployed (I checked and I know the employment office reduces the benefit if you're not available for work) or is self employed really the way to go.

Certainly from my point of view, I think I am tempted to just go the self employed route, but nevertheless would be interested in any impact my part time student status might have.
