live in CH, work in Scotland

Hello everyone,

First i would like to give a quick introduction, as this is my first post on the forum. My Name is Daniel and i just recently moved to Bern from the US. I am German and my wife is American and we have a 2 year old daughter. The reason of the relocation was my wifes job here in Bern which she started with the beginning of 2011. I am currently looking for a job in the virology/biopharmaceutical business, andi am in close discussions about an opportunity with a Scottish company that is looking for a representative for the German speaking market. During the salary discussion the question of social charges came up and who will pay them. I would assume i would pay normal Income tax in Switzerland but i am unsure about any additional taxes that might arise either here or even in Scotland. I would greatly appreciate if somebody has any information about this scenario or is in a similar situation.

Best regards

Daniel

Re: live in CH, work in Scotland

Does the company offering the job from scotland have a branch / registration in Switzerland?

if they do have a subsidiary company here then it should all be similar to any other job in Switzerland.

The most likely scenario is that you will have the main contract in Scotland, and a second contract here in Switzerland with an umbrella company or something that will handle your HR etc.

hope this helps.

Re: live in CH, work in Scotland

If you are employed in Scotland you will pay taxes in Scotland. Then you will declare this taxes paid on your family tax declaration in Switzerland and your Swiss taxes will be reduced accordingly. Simply speaking...

As others have said, easiest would be if the company you work for in Scotland has a branch in Switzerland and they pay your salary from there.
