Cross-border assignments from a social security and tax perspective

Chance oder Sackgasse?

Chance oder Sackgasse?

Die SVP und der Verein "Aktion für eine unabhängige und neutrale Schweiz" (AUNS) stehen der Personenfreizügigkeit mit der EU alles andere als wohlwollend gegenüber. Mittels dreier Vorschlagsvarianten wollen sie der Personenfreizügigkeit an den Kragen: Die Personenfreizügigkeit soll es nicht mehr geben dürfen, die Personenfreizügigkeit soll gekündigt werden oder die Personenfreizügigkeit sei zudem gar ganz als Prinzip zu verbieten.

Die Frage, ob für Drittstaatsangehörige im Rahmen eines kurzen geschäftlichen Aufenthalts in der Schweiz das Schengen Visum genügt oder eine besondere Bewilligung ("Bewilligung") verlangt ist, wird immer wieder aufgeworfen. Im Zweifelsfall empfiehlt es sich eine Bewilligung zu beantragen.
