Just coming back to this...

How easy is it to set up a company in Switerland? Might be better than running a UK company given the lower taxes in Switz?
Any feedback on this one?

For a GmbH (equivalent to a UK Ltd. company) it's easy. You just need 20,000.00 CHF in assets (cash, stock, equipment, vehicles etc). Easiest way to start is to visit startup.ch

And how easy is for a swiss company to invoice a UK company for contracting jobs? Does it involve some sort of extra work for the UK company? Like VAT, etc.

If the work is done in CH then there is no VAT on exports from CH

If the Swiss company is offering services in the UK, then depending on turnover may be required to register for UK VAT.

Interesting read, have been researching taxes all day.

You all sound very knowledgeable, could you share the details of your CH tax experts? Similar situation...

Thank you.

Re: UK Ltd company owner residing in Zurich

Sorry to revive this old thread, but I'm going through a very similar situation of the OP.
Would anybody be able to suggest an expert of both British and Swiss tax systems?
