questions about register as self-employed person

Hi everyone,

i have moved to Zurich for a few months. Thanks to this forum, i learnt a lot about Swiss job market. Thanks so much!

Now i have a few questions, i've been searching around for answers but get more and more confused. If anyone can provide me with some information, i will be greatly appreciated:

1) i have a part-time job now, and i am seeking to get some freelancing job to earn extra money. I checked online, and know that i need to register with the compensation office as self-employed person. Can I register as self-employed person while having a job at the same time?

2) the compensation office website mentioned in order to register as self-employment, the person need to provide documents such as invoice, contracts with customers etc - but i haven't got any freelancing jobs yet, i can't possibly provide these documents. That means i should get some freelancing jobs first and register after? how does it work?

sorry if the questions above might sound stupid or being answered so many times.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Re: questions about register as self-employed person

1) yes
2) they will send you a questionnaire to determine if you qualify as a freelancer and give you the authorisation to work as one. I think it's fine to register once you have had some jobs and clients - they will backdate your charges. But it may be worth trying to register without - the reason is that some clients may require that you have authorisation to work as a freelancer.
