Freelancing - a little CH/DE loophole

In Baselland and Baselstadt at least, if you are registered as self-employed in Germany, it is possible to work on that basis in the Basel Kantons - even if you set up residency in Switzerland.

I was talking to a recruitment consultant this lunchtime, and they've managed to set up a few people this way to work in Switzerland as freelancers without having to be an employee of the agency. I don't know what hoops you have to jump through in Germany to get registered though.

Re: Freelancing - a little CH/DE loophole

Would that apply to those having a Gewerbeschein from DE ?

Really?!? That's really interesting... a few years ago I was told I was no longer able to use my freelance visa status in Germany or anywhere because I left Germany and moved to Switzerland... Hmmmm
