Two jobs? Consulting for a company outside Switzerland


I'm an Indian citizen working in Switzerland on a B-permit. I was in the USA for 4 years prior to this.

A firm in the US would like to use my services as an independent consultant (a few hours a week, as a technical analyst). They will pay me for my services through a bank transfer either to India or Switzerland. There are no issues with US tax/labour laws since I am not present in the country. I would like to know if I am violating any terms of my B-permit or other Swiss labour laws by taking something like this up. Any ideas on where to turn to for advise regarding this?

Many thanks!

Re: Two jobs? Consulting for a company outside Switzerland

well, your contract shall explicitly mention if there are any such restrictions on you or not.

Usually if it is few hours spent here and there; there is no need to mention it. A lot of people in the IT do that, I guess.

For taxation, if you are not taxed at source, then it might be a good idea to declare it in "other income" section.

But again, it depends on the amount of time and money involved.

p.s. it is not really 2 jobs but rather having one job and another part time activity

Re: Two jobs? Consulting for a company outside Switzerland

sorry for grabbing this thread out of 2009 but what if you're taxed at source and you have two jobs in Switzerland, what happens tax-vise? Can I just enter the two salaries seperately into lohncomputer.ch and add up my net-income?
