How hard is it to get another residence permit if I leave?

So I just moved to Switzerland for a new job, and it wasn't really what I hoped it to be. (The recruiter oversold it, unfortunately..)

I am considering leaving and moving back, or quitting and getting another job.

One thing that impacts my decision, is: How hard would it be to get residence permit again, if I wanted to come back?

In this case it was very straightforward: I took my UK passport with offer letter to the canton and got a B permit in the mail the next week.

However, what if I want to come back as a contractor or be self-employed?

Difficult as probably sooner or later you are no longer a EU citizen and the non EU rules will apply

Yeah that's the problem I'm worried about. I do a lot of contract work from home, so my actually formal residence in the world is a flexible concept.

Is it possible to keep my B permit residence and be self-employed? Provided I keep my current residence and continue paying rent..

Ask the cantonal authorities.

Re: How hard is it to get another residence permit if I leave?

Feyr, it'll depend on the type of work. To be considered self-employed in some professions you'd need to have 3 or more clients using your services. It's all to do with who pays the various taxes, pensions, and deductions here. If you only have one client and you work in IT for example you'd probably be considered as an employee of that client and the client would be expected to pay those. If you have 3 different clients using your IT skills then you're probably self-employed and those burdens would fall on you.

Talk to your cantonal, employment and taxation offices to find out what you'd need to do.
