The principle

Helvetic Payroll pays you the fees invoiced to your clients in the form of salary following the deduction of social security contributions, taxes and any management fees under your contract.
Taxation, pillar 2 and family allowances

These elements will depend on your salary, your personal circumstances (married, single, spouse working in Switzerland, children etc.) and on your place of residence. You will receive a comprehensive and free of charge simulation based on your personal situation.

Cash Box

Having assessed the client account, we may implement financing solutions. The Cash Box works like a cash advance to eliminate the need to wait for the end client’s payment. You will therefore be paid within days following the receipt of your activity report signed by the client. This is a service which safeguards your cash flow and allows you to focus on completing your contracts.

Management fees

Helvetic Payroll’s management fees are calculated based on a percentage of the contractor’s turnover, excluding tax. A sliding scale is applied depending on the amount and recurrence of any contracts.

Although Switzerland is one of the most enjoyable places to live, the complexity of its rules and regulations confuses a large proportion of even the most experienced contractors.

Helvetic Payroll's role

  • To analyse personal circumstances in order to create an optimal financial and legal simulation

  • To manage all financial, legal and administrative aspects in full compliance with Swiss law (reporting procedure, work permits, licences etc.)

  • To offer a cash advance thanks to the Cash Box

The advantages of the employee, without the disadvantages of the independent.

The umbrella structure is the balance between the status of employee and that of independent.

Are you eligible to a payroll service in Switzerland ?

In order to benefit from the services of a Swiss payroll company, it is essential to meet one of the following criteria:

a) You work and live in Switzerland

b) You work in Switzerland and live abroad (cross-border worker)

c) You live in Switzerland and work abroad (expatriate worker)

d) You have worked in Switzerland during the last 3 months (expatriate worker)
It is imperative to have a juridical link with Switzerland.

If you are eligible, our team is at your service to provide you with a financial simulation in less than 4 hours.
Warning !
If there is no established juridical link with Switzerland, it would be impossible for you to find a legal payrolling solution in the country. Indeed, working and living abroad would expose you to social and fiscal requalification in your home country. Beware of some unscrupulous Swiss companies that could offer you this kind of service, which is completely illegal and would put you in a very difficult financial situation with your home country.
Cases of fraud
To date, we have seen many consultants being misled by unscrupulous companies. They are currently audited by the institutional bodies governing and recovering the social contributions and taxes in their home countries and contact us to regularize their situation. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do, and these people are now facing heavy fines.
