Re: Self employment while being employed

I moved here for a job, while still running my consulting business in the UK. Like an honest fool, I informed the Swiss tax leeches (sorry, authorities) of this.

It became... too complicated. Even the acronyms (ambla? lambada? Something like that) are too much. So I no longer get paid a salary by the consulting co. Just dividends, if we are lucky enough to make a profit.

I have no real idea what running a Swiss consulting co while working for an employer in CH may involve. But I suspect it is even harder than retaining something you brought with you.

Short answer: possible, but difficult.

Good luck.

Ian
