Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady

Some would be lucky to get 18 CHF an hour!

You know that he/she doesn't get chf 36/hr...

Those that I know, get between 25-28 chf/hr. So about CHF 20 in the hand. I am amazed that these admin fees cost 9chf/hour. I am guessing that because the cleaner is with a company, they will also be offered less than if they were to organise their own work.

Having a short look through some websites such as this one, also shows people offering between 20-30chf/hr.

T'is just interesting, thats all...
And of course legal. And probably better for both parties to have a go-between.

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady

I recently switched to batmaid.ch. They charge a bit more to have someone clean your home legally - paying for unemployment and accident insurance. The website is super easy and the times are flexible.

What a joke. They still use the word " putzfrauen ". That says enough!

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady/domestic help

A quick question
do we as an employer need to create a Lohnausweis at the end of the year for the domestic help?

I do. It depends on how you manage it. I use Quitt, mostly for the insurance, but figure all the taxes and stuff myself. The SVA sends me a form to fill out, and I send it back, and they send me a bill for taxes.

I prefer doing it myself because I have a reliable employee and I donít have to pay for admin I can do myself.

How many hours per week do you employ your helper?

If the salary is below a certain threshhold, you can use the simplified procesure to file the social security payments + 5% source tax.

You then get a bill to pay what’s due and your employee gets a salary certificate and a breakdown of what was paid from the social security office in your Kanton.

You can refer to my previous post on this thread for more info on the simplified procesure in Kanton Zug. No doubt a similar procedure is possible in your Kanton of residence (relevent is the employer’s Kanton of residence).

We have been using fairness at Work and are very happy, they commit to fair wages and good working conditions which means that they have low turnover and committed staff.

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady/domestic help

It is perfectly doable by anyone, it just takes time.
My rcommendations:
1) use the pdf template available in the SVA website for the pay slips (they have one for hourly pay and one for monthly pay)
2) be sure you deduct the contributions and insurance premium that is payable by your employee
3) if your domestic helper has a permit B, you will need to deduct the withholding tax too, as you will be the one paying the tax authorities, not her, therefore you need to collect it from her first. If she has a permit B and she is already employed and declared by someone else, she will face a higher tax rate (totally unfair, i still donít get why). Therefore, be sure as soon as you sign the contract, to send it to the tax authorities so they can confirm you which tax rate applied to her, so you can dedict it from her monthly salary.

You can start employing her and find out about all that in the following months, you just need to do it. Everyone in the administration is very helpful.

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady/domestic help

For anyone needing a Basel-based cleaner who is self-employed and 100% legal (does her own paperwork and provides you all the paperwork and explanations to fulfill your legal obligations), I can make a great recommendation. Just PM me. (She also cleans really well!).

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady/domestic help

Hi there,
itís very easy as we had a private one.
You have to pay the Unfallversicherung yourself for her, itís a yearly payment based on her salary.
Then you have to pay her the Pensionkasse SVA.
You can do that online. Easy

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady/domestic help

OK. Has anyone done this for Basel-Land? I've always done cleaning myself as the admin headache meant that I probably spend as much time on admin as saved cleaning.

Now with 2 kids rampaging, I probably need a minimum of 4 hours a week on cleaning and so need to figure it out. Anyone know of any specific local regulations for Basel-Land?

Thanks to the OP, I also got this template:

Re: How to legally employ a cleaning lady/domestic help

I don't think there are any cantonal regulations as cleaning is regulated by a GAV, GesamtArbeitsVertrag. AFAIK minimim hourly salary is 19.20 since 2020. If you want to be sure you could contact one of the unions, Unia for example. WRT to the authorities, you may already know about the simplified procedure for employers.

But why take the hassle of doing all the backoffice stuff yourself when services like quitt.ch are available? I have no experience with them, but it looks like you get full transparency, and you can always talk to the cleaner her/himself to check and AFAIK they've been around for quite some time. Here as well, the unions should be able to tell who's shady for you to avoid the chaff.
