Salary advice permanent or contract

I have two offers. One offer is for the permanent position with 115K CHF per year.
Second offer is for the contractor with the daily rate 550 CHF(plus employer contribution). I can find Swiss tax calculator for the permanent job so I have the rough idea about the net salary for the permanent job. But I can not find any good tax calculator for the contractor jobs. So what do you think which one of these offer is better. The both positions are in Zurich.
Thank you for your help.

550CHF seems low, given the risks and overheads of contracting compared to permie.

I'd choose permanent too, when difference is that low it always pays off to have a steady job. If there's no gain why take the pain?

Thank you for your help.
It is years ago since I did the calculation, but to equal a salary of 105K, you'd have to be on 95 CHF an hour (net) and be fully signed up all year.

Enter your details into the "Private Tax" software of Kanton Zurich

http://www.steueramt.zh.ch/internet/.../software.html

and get the expected results for 2014. 2015 would be no different.
