Re: Working for Swiss company remotely (from Spain) on a Swiss contract? What permit?

1. Is it possible to do this? It's routine. I have a subcontractor in France and other in Sweden. I think the work in Spain is "autónomos". They send their invoices for their work we pay. There's a contract but it's a freelancer contract, not a employment one. They don't need any document from Switzerland, all I need to pay them is a VAT identification and IBAN numbers.

2. If possible, can it be done under a Swiss contract? I guess it's possible but I'm not sure if the Swiss company with a permanent employee in Spain is liable to pay taxes there. What does the Spain tax law says? I think the worst case for your employer is to be liable for social contributions (unemployment, retirement, etc) in both countries.

3. If all of the above are possible, what is the required residency/job permit? Is a residency permit needed at all? If you're not working or living in Switzerland, no permit is needed at all.
