Payroll in Switzerland.

Switzerland is known for its beautiful scenery and strong trade relationships with countries across Europe, making it an ideal location for companies looking to expand. However, the nation’s laws and customs are complex and vary widely by region.

When setting up a Switzerland payroll, keep these rules in mind to stay compliant.

Hiring in ChSwitzerland.

When expanding into Switzerland, the hiring and recruitment process might seem straightforward — conduct interviews, draft employment contracts, and set up payroll. However, navigating the complexities of employing workers in a new country can present unforeseen challenges, especially when you have to ensure compliance with all of Switzerland’s employment laws.

Compensation & Benefits in Switzerland.

Potential applicants usually focus on 2 main areas when applying for jobs — compensation and benefits. For this reason, employers in Switzerland should not only offer guaranteed benefits to stay compliant with local laws, but also include additional benefits that will help attract and retain talent.

Switzerland Subsidiary.

Although not a member of the European Union (EU), Switzerland is considered a great location to expand because of its business-friendly regulations for internationally 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 begin hiring, run payroll, and develop a benefits and compensation plan. Luckily, G-P is a beneficial alternative, enabling you to begin operations quickly and compliantly — without establishing a Switzerland subsidiary.
