One-time freelance job while full-time employed

I have a C permit and am full-time employed (42h week). Recently I was offered a chance to make some small independent work (setting up a website, wouldn’t require more than a couple of weekends). How does this work in terms of employment/taxes? Would I have to register as a freelance or something similar?

I do not plan to this again in the near future, and so I definitely don’t want to get lost in swiss bureocracy. But my client needs to declare expenses in her own company, so there has to be some kind of paperwork.

Thanks in advance for some advice!

Re: One-time freelance job while full-time employed

With C permit, you have legal right to work
Technically as freelancer you are "self-employed" for second job. However, since you aren't incurring huge potential liability or chance of on-job injury, not being registered as Einzelfirma or GmbH seems manageable risk
You will owe bit of AHV insurance if you make more than SFr 2300; call your local Kanton Ausgleichskasse for specifics

As long as you don't make more than SFr 21,150 from second job you shouldn't have any 2.pillar costs.
On annual tax return, just list your primary job as main income, add this income under supplemental job / second income.
Good luck!

Check the wording of your full time contract. They often have an exclusion clause.
