Re: Self employment while being employed

View Post
Can I found a personal company and do freelance jobs in my free time, while I am 100% employed? Then can I use my Pillar 3a money for the deposit of that company? What happens to teh deposit if I close that company?

All assuming my employer agrees with that.
Independent secondary activity is usually ok if the income from it doesn't exceed 25% of the gross pay from the primary employment, otherwise the question arises which of the two is actually your primary activity (I know it works this way in GE, VD and VS for sure, other cantons probably have similar rules).
However, you can only withdraw your pillar 3 when becoming 'fully' independent (meaning, no employment contract elsewhere and you're registered with AVS as an independent). In any case, you'll need to pay social contributions on your freelance income directly to the cantonal AVS department for the independents.
