Companies with mobile employees

You have employees,

  • who are cross-border commuters
  • frequent business travellers
  • work remotely from home or “anywhere”
  • on an international Assignment
  • moving to Switzerland on a local basis

Do you have questions about the taxation of your employees, the risks for you as an employer, the tax liability of individual wage components in payroll or how to ensure that you and your employees do not pay more tax than if they had remained at home?

We believe that you deserve the solutions that best fit your company’s situation and we would welcome being your partner in both their development and direct implementation.

Determining the status of your retirement provisions

Do you know what your pension situation will look like in old age? Were you only employed in Switzerland or were you subject to social security contributions in multiple countries? Do you have children and are you entitled to educational credits (“Erziehungsgutschriften”)?

We think you deserve to be in the best possible position for your retirement. We are happy to assist in both reviewing the current status and helping you plan for the future.

Tax and social security consulting for individuals and Directors of the Board

Consulting for individuals

Cross-border moves, on either an assignment or local basis, are generally accompanied by a more complex tax situation. This includes, for example, accounting for compensation (e.g. bonuses or equity) earned outside of Switzerland with your former employer, on-going overseas personal income, or the question of your new domicile for tax purposes.

Topics where experience shows that there is a risk of double taxation. 

We think you deserve expert advice to ensure proper analysis of your tax situation.

Consulting for Directors of the Board

In many cases, members of the board of directors hold several mandates, which means that it is not always easy for a company to recognize how the Director’s Fees must be accounted for. Depending on the individual situation of the board member, there may be an obligation to pay taxes and social security contributions abroad.

We believe that you deserve competent support in these matters so that you can concentrate on your role as a board member.
