Payroll / Umbrella company

I am IT contractor in Zurich. I am working here since couple of years. I was always been payrolled by the agencies. Like Swisslinx and Harvnash.

Now I got an offer through another agency and they don't offer payroll service.

I am looking for recommendations of good payroll companies in Zurich.

Has anyone used payroll company called tresag? If yes, pls share your experiences. Their website is tresag.com

suggestions and recommendations pls.

Re: Payroll / Umbrella company

Hi ....

I have had experience with Tresag although I no longer use them....

They have a good sales team and provide you with good support and explanation of social insurance and tax liabilities in Switzerland. They are always available by email or phone if you need to clarify matters with them.

However the service is very expensive as you have to pay employer and employee AHV plus their service charge and then Cantonal Tax.

I would advise you to get them to provide you with an illustration of your gross less all the deductions to get an idea of what you can expect as your net income.

There is also another company called v5 which you can use to compare

Re: Payroll / Umbrella company

Do you need this service? Is there a legal necessity?

You need to pay the tax office and the AHV / AVS, is this very difficult?

My interest is that my girl friend is still fighting a payroll company in Solothurn for the return of her Fr 3,100 deposit.

Would u mind giving the full details of V5 please. I could not get their details online. I mean website address or contact details

So your experience with Tresag is good though very expensive.
