He will need to be registered as self employed, but i don't think a student can be, so I guess you'll need to employ him as a normal part time employee.

Self-employment certainly not allowed for non-EU students. Here are the rules from ETHZ:

Re: Invoicing in CH

Many thanks- so it says students can be employed part time. However, this would be freelancing for us, certainly less than 15 hours per week, we are not based in CH

Again, non-EU students need their Swiss employers to apply for a work permit for them. This means as you're not in the country, sorry but you can't employ them.

Grow up. You are exposing yourself to and your company to prosecution for this kind of behaviour.

If you are not based in CH, surely you should be getting legal advise in your own location?

I was immediately thinking the same way

So where is your business actually located? When I was a student I did a lot of short IT works remotely for people across the border of my country and I never bothered with accounting, just got the money. That was before EU Nowadays make the transaction in BTC and sleep well
