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.

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 don’t 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).
