Leaving CH -tax confusion

Hi there
i will try to be brief with our query, but am hoping for some wisdom or experience .

we came here for Husbands job, all on B permits tied to his job .

He was made redundant and has been looking for work .

Has just found contract position in UK but they want him to start next week and we are nowhere near ready with tying the ends up here in CH.

He has to set up a company in the UK to be paid as a contractor which is in progress..

My question-can he go start work and the client pays the agency who pay his company later -what would the tax implications be if any ?

Im wondering if he goes and works 2/3 weeks then comes back here to deregister etc /

Don't panic, it's only tax, and there is a Double Taxation Agreement between UK/CH, so he won't be taxed twice.


Sounds like there is no time left anyway to alter what will happen.
He may not get paid for 60/90 days in the UK anyway.

If you work for a big agency, they should pay you a couple of weeks after the monthly timesheet is submitted, maybe sooner.


If it's a small agency/one man band, sometimes they have cash flow issues, and need to wait for their invoice to be paid by the customer, which could be 30/60/90 days after submission.


Probably you want to check the terms and conditions.

It's taxable in the Tax year you issue the invoice .
