Permit via UK entity with swiss contract?

Hi all,

I was wondering if you can help/guide me on the below related to work permit application and procedures. Apologies if this has been answered before, but couldn't find something similar.

I got a contract from a UK company that does not have a legal entity here, however, they offer Swiss contract as a permanent employee, which includes all the insurances/pension benefits as per Swiss law, and they would also pay through a Swiss payroll.

However, when I went to Bevölkerungsdienste und Migration in Basel to apply for the working permit. They told me that since this is a UK entity, I don't need a permit. I explained them that I will be taxable in Swiss, and everything will be handled from here and I need the permit + bank account, otherwise the contract will not be valid. They advised me that they need to review my case 1-2 weeks prior they tell me what can be done. I haven't hear anything back and I m close to w2.

Any idea on what I can do?

I also submitted the below documents:
- signed contract of employment
- valid passport (EU) +one photo in passport size
- Rental agreement for 7 months
- ‘registration form english’
- ‘Vorstrafenerklärung BS’

Thank you!

I am in the same situation, about to make a move, my employer is in the UK and I will work remotely from Switzerland. Brexit is making things more complicated but was your application successful? Would passport, employment contract showing you work remotely and payslips be enough? I can get an Airbnb, temporary apartment if address is needed too.

Many thanks!
