Your profile: You are a Freelance-Consultant who needs to bill his client(s) lawfully
Become a Consultant at Thalent, our Swiss umbrella company
You are a professional in your field of expertise and want to start an autonomous activity as a freelance consultant
You already have or are about to have one or several clients and assignments
You need a legal status and would like to have the status of an employee
To be an Independent Freelance working in Switzerland you need to fulfill many obligations like for example:
- Registering to be self-employed and have your new status recognized with the compensation office
- Invoicing, accounting, VAT, withholding Tax payment
- Contributing to the 1st pillar of the pension system (OASI/DI, AVS/AI, AHV/IV)
- Contributing voluntarily to a 2nd pillar pension plan (OPP/LPP/BVG)
- Saving money for your holidays
- Saving money in case of loss of clients or activity
If you work as an independent, you are obliged to register legally if you want to bill your clients. You will not be allowed to contribute to unemployment insurance and are not entitled to paid holidays: you have to put money aside by yourself for that.
Why not become a Freelance-Consultant with us? You carry out your activity autonomously whilst benefiting from the status of an employee.
