EU18 citizen living in CH, remote work with DE employer

First and foremost, many thanks to all that helped me with my questions about apartment hunting in Olten and Bern.

I return with another permit related question that isn't really addressed in the sticky or other threads.

The background:
  • GF (EU18) & I (non-EU) work now in Germany, however my position got relocated to Switzerland (I got documentations already)
  • GF wants to continue to work for the same company (under German contract) but from Switzerland (home office in our new residence)
My question is:
  • What permit does she need to apply for? Only a residence permit or does she need a L/B work permit as well? Or would it count as cross-border work (G permit)?
The case is a little unique but I hope EF can provide some collective insight into this. I will contact HR as soon as possible but every bit of research helps.

As a GF and not a spouse she has to have a reason to be in Switzerland.

Cross border G permits actually work the other way round - you can live in the EU and work in Switzerland as long as you go home once a week.

Looks like your best option is that she registers as self employed which may be allowed in your circumstances even though she only has the one "client". Alternatively use an umbrella company to employ her in Switzerland.

Re: EU18 citizen living in CH, remote work with DE employer

Just an update on this after almost 4 months.

So, the gf got a L permit (home office contract is 6 months with options for renewal, otherwise, it would have been a B permit). We went to a few different Amts after we arrived in Switzerland. They were very nice to us and told us exactly what to do. First, her German company had to fill out some forms, submitted it the proper Amt stating how much she earned and confirming she is insured, then she was allowed to register as a residence and get her permit. The turn around took about 1.5 weeks.

The process was much easier than we had thought.
