Income from two sources

PREFACE: sorry, I posted this originally in the 'Employment' category, but realize it is probably better suited here.

Hi All,

I am coming from Canada to Basel to work for a local company and will still have "secondary ties" (bank account, credit card, drivers licence, passport, etc.) to Canada. I will hold a B permit and will be earning under 100,000 CHF

The company I work for will be my primary source of income, but for a few years now I have been doing some freelance work and make anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000 per year as my second income. It is not a registered business or anything, just some casual work I do on my computer.

I am confused as to reporting this secondary income on my Swiss taxes, as for my Canadian taxes I use to just report it as "other income". Is it possible to do the same for my Swiss taxes, and is there any way that the company that I will be working for (primary income providers) will know about this secondary income? As I understand it, I will need to be reporting this secondary income for both my Swiss AND Canadian income tax.

I've been reading about taxes and regulations for both Canada and Switzerland for several days now, and am still a little confused.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
