I’m trying to get a remote job, and Swiss companies being what they are about 100% remote work, it looks like I have way more chance to be working for a US company.
This means I’d have to invoice the US company for my services instead of being a Swiss employee.
I’m not very clear on the options and how much overhead there is. I need to know so that I can quote a yearly number that makes sense an to make sure I don’t end up being paid less than as an employee for a CH company.
Will I have to pay 20% into my second pillar (employer + employee parts)? Will I have to charge VAT? What about actual taxes, will it be on income as an individual or on profits as a company? What about 1st pillar contributions? Can I then choose which kanton my company pays taxes in (hello kanton Uri!) or will it be where I physically live? Does any of that have an impact on my residence permit (B)?
Ideally, I’d like to hear from someone currently earning money that way and how is it all setup.
