Frontier worker - tax....

Looks like I might well be working in Basel for two years, on contract, for a German consultancy.

I know Basel sits well on three EU states, giving one a choice of where to live, I'm just wondering what's best for our situation.

Me - Brit born and bred.

Partner - we are unmarried, she non-EU visa national lived together seven years now, all provable, she works in UK for a Swiss co based in, wait for it, Basel...

My thoughts are France is more amenable to partner relationships ie PACS, Germany and CH not so, so it makes sense to live in the FR part of Basel Stadt, but I don't know where we stand tax wise, to be honest i'm not that bothered, just don't want to make a decision and regret it and move again.

So we'd both be cross-border workers, or both be living and working in CH, which is best for tax and logistics given her non-visa status?

We have two kids - both biologically mine and not hers, tho she is their guardian here in the PC UK..
