Tax & AVS, living in Switzerland but working everywhere including Switzerland

Hi

Does anyone know what the deal is if you live in Switzerland but work for British companies (2) working in the UK, Singapore and Switzerland? It is a week in each place every few months so not actually earning much (approx 5000-1000 per year). I would not be contributing to UK pension etc.

Do I have to pay Social Security (AVS)? And what do I do for my taxes? I am happy to contribute to both but realize it shouldn't be much either.

I have tried to find information online and through both government agencies but my French is very limited (as is my google translate patience) and I am getting the go around treatment via email and phone.

Any advise would be much appreciated. Please help!

If you live in Switzerland you're taxed in Switzerland. And yes you have to pay Social Security, everyone does even if they're not working.
