Re: Starting an own company while working 100%

Hi Everyone

I am living in Switzerland with a B Permit together with my girlfriend and I would like to start a Hair and Beauty Salon Business.

Currently I am working 100% pensum as an employee and earn a nice salary and I have heard that if I have a company I can deduct the costs of the company from my personal taxes. How does that work? Let's say if I rent a place for my business for 12 000 CHF per year and I would pay 20 000 CHF taxes a year I would only have to pay 8 000 CHF taxes plus the taxes for the profits my business makes?

Is it legal to employ my girlfriend (soon to be wife) in my own company?

Thanks for your answers.
You have been given wrong information. The taxman in Switzerland will not let you off paying tax just because you rent business premises. I have been in exactly your position and speak from experience.
