G-permit (cross-border commuter) Does anyone have any experience with this?

hi guys,
I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the G permit for cross-border commuters.
http://www.bfm.admin.ch/bfm/en/home/...g_eg_efta.html

I've just started a new job on a one-year contract and need to apply for a permit.

In particular, whether having a G permit as opposed to an L permit would have any effect on my tax bill. As I understand it, if I was resident in Switzerland my choice of commune would effect how much tax I pay. But in my case, I'm not resident in Switzerland at all, just popping in to work.

many thanks in advance,
lux

Hello

If you get a L/B permit then automatically you pay the full Quellensteuer (depending on the Canton you live). If you are on a G permit then you pay 4.5% Quellensteuer in Switzerland and the rest of taxes is depending on your home country. However, even in this case, there is this so called "60 Tage Regelung", which says that if you live for more than 60 (I think it's working) days in Switzerland you pay the full Quellensteuer in Switzerland. There are also other similar exceptions (e.g. one related to the distance you commute)

Where should one go to apply for a G permit? Would that be the Stadhaus in the canton of my employer?

In the cases I know the employer has applied for everything; the G-permit than can be send to the employer by the authorities and they give it to you.

And yes, it is in the Canton where your employer is based.
