Consultant UN Geneva - Living in France - Tax Issues

Hi All! 


I have just started working as a consultant for the UN in Geneva, while living in France (Annecy).


I am currently considering setting up my own entreprise in France, and register fully in France for tax purposes, but am also trying to figure out if it I should set up as an independent consultant in Switzerland instead. Could I have frontalier status even though I am registered as self-employed rather than employed/salariée in Switzerland? 


Any advice or sharing of others' experiences would be greatly appreciated - or contacts to an accountant or tax advisor that could help. 


I have tried browsing websites such as frontalier.org but not found any clear answers so far. 


I am an EU citizen. w


Many thanks


Marlene

For setting up an association in Geneva, check out CAGI.ch. Might not be exactly what you are looking for, but they may have other contacts for you.

Hello, i wouldn't set up in France for tax purposes as they are much higher in France. I would definitely go independent or 'entreprise individuelle' in Switzerland simply because the money is better and the taxes are less. I had my own Sàrl in Switzerland and sold it just over a year ago - no way I would have done it in France. 


I dont work in tax, but my collegues do, so let me know if you'd like more info.


Have a nice day.

Hi Marlene,


hope you are fine and was wondering if you have gotten any more information on this? If so, I would be grateful if you could share. 


Best,
