Company creation and Basel tax advisor

Hello all,
I will be moving with my family to Basel (my spouse is transferred there and I will also have a work permit)


I currently freelance and own a company abroad and potentially I would like to do something similar once in Basel by keeping some of my foreign clients and working fully remotely for them from Basel.


As of now I am considering incorporating a company in swizterland (canton to be determined) or incorporating potentially offshore.
I have been trying to contact a few tax advisors in Switzerland so far but was not convinced... Right away i was quoted a fee to incorporate locally while I would rather be looking at someone who would help me first do an inventive analysis (switzerland? which canton? offshore?) to decide what structure would work better first.


Would anyone have experience with this and could help or refer me to some advisors?


Thanks in advance

This will depend on the type of permit your wife gets. If it's an L - quite likely as a non-EU national - then self-employment isn't possible for you. If she gets a B then you can be self-employed.

As for incorporating a company, it would have to meet certain market and labour conditions to be able to hire you on an L permit; with a B it shouldn't be a problem. Just because you have a company here doesn't necessarily mean it can hire you.

Hi,


actually we are EU citizens, we will be on legitimation card and I should be able to get a Ci permit from there.

Seems you would need authorisation from the cantonal authorities to be self-employed.

"The "Ci" permit is issued for a salaried activity (full time or part time) or for an independent activity. The independent activity may only be exercised if the holder of the "Ci" permit has obtained the necessary authorisation to practice the profession or activity in question from the competent authorities (such as officials responsible for commercial activities or for health matters)."

If he is employed by his GmbH, he won't be self-employed.

Yeah, and being EU it's not a problem anyway to be employed by your company.

We used https://www.gmacg.com/ - Gabrielle Grether - to set up our GmbH. I would urge you to ask a professional - the legal advice you get via EF is worth what you pay for it.
