Working from home from a another EU country

Hi,

I'm a third country national and works in Switzerland with a B-permit. My partner is also a third country national and works with a resident permit in Sweden. I'm looking at the possibility for working from Sweden. I know I cannot stay outside Switzerland with my B-permit for more than 6 months. My question is regarding stays less than 6 months.
1) If my stay is less than 3 months (within a 180 day window) do I have to inform authorities in Sweden and Switzerland?
2) If my stay is more than 3 months (within a 180 day window) I will have to take visa in Sweden. But do I need to inform this to authorities in Switzerland?
3) Do I need to pay taxes in Sweden as well?

Thank you,

Re: Working from home from a another EU country

Do I need to pay taxes in Sweden even when my stay is shorter than 3 months?

Re: Working from home from a another EU country

Your Swiss permit allows you to visit Sweden for up to 3 months as a tourist - no work allowed.

If you're in Sweden for more than 3 months then you need to register as being resident there and will lose the permit here.

Only their tax office can answer for sure. Basically yes because most countries tax the income produced there (within limits and according to bilateral agreements), but I guess it depends on how much you earned during that time. There was a year when I earned very little from a side project I worked from home here, but it was only for a couple of months and the amount was ridiculous for CH so it didn't get taxed.

If you're third-country national it's very problematic for your situation here. Your work permit here doesn't warrant you the right to work there - in Sweden. (I'm pretty sure on that) Again, ask their tax office. English is widely spoken there as far as I know. Be open and transparent, things might be easier than we think.

Re: Working from home from a another EU country

Your B permit expires after 6 3 months, not 3 6.

No, it doesn't. The 3 months applies to L permits; B/C permits become invalid after 6 months.
