EU citizen - Maintain client relationship in home country

Hi all

My (Swiss) girlfriend and I are looking into our options to move together later this year near or in Zürich. I'm myself from Denmark, so an EU citizen.

Today I'm self-employed and work mainly for a single long-term client. They are financially stable and I really enjoy working with them, so I looked into if I could continue as self-employed when I move to Switzerland with a sole proprietorship. But since I have only one client, it doesn't qualify as self-employment per Swiss law - that is what it is, nothing to do about that.

So what are my options to continue working with my Danish client when I move to Switzerland? I'm trying to understand how to do a legitimate and correct setup :-)

FYI: The client has offered before to hire me into the company, and that option is still on the table. But would that setup be accepted?

Thanks in advance! And thanks for adding me to the forum :-)

Probably ANOBAG - do a search, you should find plenty of info on here

Two options:
1) ANOBAG. Employees without a (social security) contributory employer

2) GmbH/SARL

Re: EU citizen - Maintain client relationship in home country

There are thousands of IT contractors who work as self employed people for a single client. Nothing illegal about that.

The government typically starts to get difficult about it if they have the impression that it is a case of fake independence - a company pushing you to be self employed in order to save social insurances or cutting on labour rights.

So: is your client goin to pay you within the range thats considered "normal" in CH?

Thanks for the answer!

When I check my salary against the median in for developers in Switzerland it's close to the average (for developers).

I'm getting interested in paying myself from my company in Denmark. So for that I would need ANOBAG and possibly use Payroll Plus for the job? Is that correctly understood?
