Re: Fire myself or Unpaid Leave for 2 to 3 months

The applicable law relating to AHV contributions is Art. 35 Abs. 2 AHVV. This law states that significant changes (wesentliche Änderungen) to wages during the year should be reported to the compensation fund. "Significant" is interpreted as more than 10%. As such, the OP might wish to communicate the wage changes to the compensation fund while keeping in mind that if s/he does through the accountant, it might cost more than it's worth.

The OP might also begin thinking about whether it is worthwhile to have a legal entity or whether s/he should possibly switch to a payroll provider and get rid of the legal entity. Depending on the situation, payroll providers can be less expensive than maintaining a legal entity, might possibly offer a better pension plan and would most likely be less of a headache.

Another idea for the OP to consider is to use the Saldosteuersatz method for VAT. Since input VAT is not tracked and reporting is every six months, this method saves administrative effort. For some businesses with limited input VAT, this method can be slightly profitable for a company as the VAT is charged out to the customer at the full amount (normally 7.7%) while the VAT payment is calculated at lower percentage, e.g., 6.5% for an IT service company.
