Working for a US employer whilst living in CH

Hi All

Does anybody have experience working for an employer in the US, whilst living in Switzerland?

Looking for advice regarding social security numbers and tax exemption. Feeling a little confused...

My primary question is whether I need to request something an ITIN? Or whether I can simply use my AHV number to complete the W-8BEN form?

If I do need to get an ITIN, what is the quickest and easiest way to obtain one? Through a consulate, online, etc.?

Also, are there additional forms to complete so that I don't end up paying taxes, etc. in both countries?

Many thanks in advance
