Confused about the Swiss freelance system? You’re not alone

Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is considered one of the most competitive and innovative countries in the world. Its liberal economy, political stability, and of course high salaries make it an attractive location for freelancers. But don’t let your guard down, in Switzerland taxes are imposed both at federal level and canton level with all 26 cantons having a high degree of independence. This makes Swiss payroll and taxation one of the most complex systems in Europe.
