Re: Working while at the RAV

It's not clear if your scenario above applies while still registered with the RAV. If you are registered with the unemployment office, you must declare this income to the unemployment office (they have a form that you complete each month). Taxes and social contributions are deducted by the unemployment office. I think the RAV is more familiar with this way of working than before.
If you de-register from the unemployment office and start working as a freelancer, you will no longer be entitled to unemployment benefits if things don't work out. Hence, it's better to stay registered with the unemployment office until you are confident you will have a steady income stream (even though it's a nightmare doing both). If you plan to work as an independent contractor then contact the AHV/AVS to register yourself.
ch.ch may have some info in English, but not a lot.
The RAV does not deduct taxes or AHV on self employed earnings earnings & in the interest of accuracy the RAV does not deal with money at all..........

It's not a nightmare to deal with,I did this over a very long period of time.
