Payroll in Switzerland.

Switzerland is known for its beautiful scenery and friendly, peaceful environment, ideal for a business looking to expand. The country exports a diverse array of products including chemicals, electronics, and instruments, and it has strong trade relationships with countries across Europe. However, the nation’s laws and customs are incredibly complicated and vary widely by region.

Hiring in ChSwitzerland.

When you are ready to recruit and hire employees in Switzerland, it seems simple to conduct interviews, write an employment contract, and add an employee to your payroll. However, employing workers in a new country can prove more difficult as you try to meet all of Switzerland’s employment compliance laws.

Compensation & Benefits in Switzerland.

Potential applicants for open positions usually focus on two main areas — compensation and benefits. As an employer in Switzerland, you’ll need to offer guaranteed benefits to stay compliant with local laws, and you should also provide additional benefits that employees expect. G-P can help you provide both through our Switzerland benefit outsourcing services. We will add your employees to our payroll and follow all of Switzerland’s compensation laws, and we’ll take on the risk so you can focus on running your business.

Switzerland Subsidiary.

Although not a member of the European Union (EU), Switzerland is considered a great location to expand because of its lack of restrictions on foreign-owned companies. However, the expansion process is not always straightforward. You must establish a subsidiary in Switzerland or find a proper subsidiary alternative before you can hire employees, run payroll, and come up with a benefits and compensation plan. G-P is the alternative to establishing a Switzerland subsidiary you need to start operations quickly.
