How is foreign income taxed in Switzerland?


I am a freelance consultant working in Switzerland in Kanton Zug and pay my taxes in CH for this. Recently started working as part time few days per week in France. I am facing direct tax deductions from my salary in France (as non resident in France). My question is: will I have to pay also taxes on foreign earnings in CH?

Appreciate any advise.

Re: How is foreign income taxed in Switzerland?

In general, you are taxed in Switzerland on your worldwide income, so yes.

However, the tax treaties with some countries exclude some things (such as income from real estate) as long as they are taxed in those countries: but they may affect the rate at which you pay tax in Switzerland.

In your position I'd think it is worth finding a French-Swiss accountant, if only to avoid paying more tax then claiming it back later.
