Non-EU, B-Permit (Long term) - Multiple jobs?

Hello Friends, I am a Non-EU and have a long term B permit which can be renewed every year. I work for 80 percent (4 days) now for a company. They are OK if I work for remaining 20 percent for another company.

1) With this kind of permit am I eligible to work for another company for 20 percent?

1.1) I am also looking for some contracting work. Is that an option? If yes do I have any restriction for maximum work hours (Am I allowed to work only 8.24 hours (1 day) per week since I cant work more than 42 hours per week?)

Please let me know if you have any idea about it. Thanks.

MODS - I requested this info in Non-EU permit thread but didn't get any reply so creating a separate thread for more visibility and might be useful for others.

Re: Non-EU, B-Permit (Long term) - Multiple jobs?

Thanks Shorrick_Mk2 for your quick response. If you don't mind could you please let me know

1) Do I need to inform the local authorities (Gemeinde) that I am going to join another company?

2) Is there anything else I should do (process) if I work for more than one company? Its just that I wanna make sure I follow the rules.


Please correct me if I am wrong

1) The company for whom I work more than 50% always renews my permit.

2) Both the company I work are gonna deduct tax at source. So I dont have to file tax separately.

Thanks in advance.

If you have contributed to unemployment for the appropriate period of time then you are entitled to collect unemployment, and your permit will be renewed (if needed) with the unemployment office becoming your de facto "employer".

You need written approval from BOTH companies that they agree to you having two employers (it needs to be specific - we agree that mr DPMP works for XYZ company)

Please correct me if I am wrong

Correct but you could be asked to file as the combined income tax rate could be different from the sum of the partial tax rates.

Re: Non-EU, B-Permit (Long term) - Multiple jobs?

Dear DPMP,
I see that your questions are more or less already answered but my 2 cents ...

You can work for more than one employer presuming your B Permit is an open permit. If its restricted or tied to a client/project then you cannot work for 2 or more employers as planned.

For the total hours you can work ... I am unsure if there is a govt. imposed restriction for the same, barring that you can work for atleast 45 hours (sum) without being red flagged (my opinion).

For taxes, you will be taxed at source on the pay from each employer, but at the end of the year, when you file your returns, you will have to show the salary certificates from all organisations, sources including all assets and bank accounts and will be actually taxed on the net sum since potentially the 2nd employer might deduct lesser tax given that your income from them will be below the min. income/taxable income.

Regards,
Abhi
