Italian wife working in Italy and relocating to Switzerland

Hi,

I am an italian citizen, working in Switzerland since 9 years and holding a C permit.
I just got married in Italy with my long time fiancee, who lives and works (full time employee) in Milan.
She will be moving here mid February, as we rented a big flat for us, however will keep working for her italian company remotely when possible, or in the Milan office every few weeks. She travels a lot for work, hence the location is not an issue for her company.

Now my question is: I would need to apply probably for a residence permit for her to live with me. Which one would she get and/or is it needed at all considering she is working in Italy?

To make things "easier", she will go to maternity leave (paid by the Italian welfare) mid April / early May as we are expecting due in early June. Will this change anything or is there anything I would need to consider to avoid any issue in registering the baby etc.?

Thanks a lot to whoever could help with some hints on how to proceed in these cases...

Regards
Ale

She needs a residence permit if she resides here, working or not, unless she keeps her residence in Italy and only visits from time to time.

As you have a C, normally she would automatically get a B.

Thanks! I will take help of a tax advisor for the part concerning the tax declaration, as I understand I may have to account for her income and taxes in Italy in my declaration?

You need to check double taxation agreements between Italy and Switzerland.

This bit caught my eye. Anyone know if she can be on Italian mat leave as a resident of Switzerland? As it's written here it sounds like the government pays the mat leave and not the employer. I don't know, thus why I'm repeating OP's question.
