If you employ domestic employees, as a private employer you are bound to settle social security contributions with the Cantonal compensation office. Quitt registers you as an employer and your employees automatically with this authority at the start of the employment contract. Based on your information, quitt decides whether the registration in the simplified or ordinary procedure is required and records the corresponding contribution rates for your pay slips in your personal customer account.
The income of foreign employees is subject to withholding tax. Based on a few questions about the employee’s person, quitt determines whether your domestic employee is liable to withholding tax. If this is the case, quitt registers your domestic help automatically with the relevant Cantonal tax authority, forwards all necessary information on your employee’s income and living situation to this authority and records the applicable withholding tax rate in your personal customer account.
For employment relationships with a gross salary of more than CHF 1,837.50 per month or CHF 22,050 per year, employers are bound to register their employees with a pension fund for pension provision (BVG/2nd pillar).
Quitt works with the pension fund Valitas Compacta for this purpose. If the salary is above the BVG entry threshold, quitt will register your employees automatically with the pension fund and record the contributions to be paid for payroll accounting in your customer account.
Quitt handles correspondence and communication with the above-mentioned authorities and bodies on your behalf. This also includes the annual declaration of all gross wages billed and the subsequent payment of the contributions, taxes and premiums billed.
