Thanks for your reply Swissbob,the contract is very unlikely that would get renewed, what you mention about remain register for tax and social security would be the ideal situation however... I dont it will be feasible as the job agent in London seems quite determine to make me sign up with one of this swiss umbrella companies...
Would you have any other ideas?

thanks!!
Hi, Yes it is quite understandable that they want you to get a company in Switzerland. Ultimately if this goes belly up then they will be liable for the social security contributions in Switzerland and potentially the UK!

You need to understand a bit about the Swiss Tax system though to answer if Basel is okay at 37%(I would say no). And you need to state what your objectives are. Is it to flit over to Switzerland do the contract and return to base?

You do have several options and you do need a bit of advice to get the best deal. Things that are additionally relevant are age, and family situation, where the place of work will be and what kind of accomodation you will be seeking and where. PM me or post your objectives and I will provide you the answers.
