Mate allowed to help with DIY project

Hi, Is a best mate allowed to visit me in CH and then help for a few days in a DIY project without having a work permit.



Thanks for the clarification.

Depending on passport working for up to 8? days doesn't not need anything, up to 90 requires registration .

Re: Mate allowed to help with DIY project

I think the point is the friend won't be being paid so it depends on whether this is still counted as 'working'. My initial reaction would be sure do whatever you want.

I think that is probably right, however with an EU passport or even a UK one to the end of the year there would be no problem someone coming to do a few days work.

Up to 8 days work in a year is fine https://blogs.deloitte.ch/tax/2016/0...ould-know.html

How nosy are your neighbors and how close to German border?

One acquaintance from Basel told me the neighbors called the police shortly after a plumber came to work to his flat. They called because of unmarked white van parked outside with D plates, noise coming from the flat therefore suspect of illegal work. The police came to check the permit of the plumber and everything legal. There shouldn't be a problem at all, just keep in mind sometimes innocence is not assumed, it has to be proved.

It does not matter whether the work is paid or not. And furthermore, insurance will also be an issue should anything go wrong.

I agree. Even if the best mate is paid, who will know unless OP publishes on an internet forum?

If OP is lucky, best mate will have to quarantine = OP has to lock him in the room in question and mate has to do all the work alone. Is 10 days enough to get the work done?

This. If he is on holiday and gets ill, the insurance of his country of residence should cover it. If, however, he is working and has an accident, the insurance of his home country may well decline any costs. Best to check this out, beforehand.
