Once a consultant has been accepted for a contract post, Sigma will ensure that all of the contracts are set up smoothly with the client (in Switzerland or elsewhere) and the individual concerned.

In order to work compliantly on temporary contracts in Switzerland, consultants must be supplied by a company with a Swiss labour leasing license.  This ensures that consultants are protected by Swiss legislation relating to temporary workers and that the supplying company will take care of the many administrative requirements relating to local and foreign temporary workers in Switzerland. 

Sigma has been employing personnel in Switzerland since 1990 and we have cantonal and federal Swiss labour leasing licences. We offer support for every aspect of consultants' contracts, from initial registration to final tax clearance. Upon arrival, we will assist with obtaining all relevant work and residence permits, provide advice on opening local bank accounts and obtaining mandatory health cover, and answer any initial queries that may arise - allowing consultants to concentrate on the job in hand.

Once settled, our consultants benefit from our comprehensive payroll service, including fully compliant local tax and social security management, the application of any applicable tax-free allowances, and the transparent handling of assignment income. As contracts draw to a close, we will assist with any necessary deregistration procedures, with tax clearance if required and with confirmation of pension balances.  We can also advise on any residual tax liability abroad if required.

In choosing Sigma, you are choosing to work with a company that has almost 20 years of local and international experience, providing unrivalled service and affording you the peace of mind which comes with efficient, compliant assignment management.

One of Sigma's key competences lies in the provision of recruitment support services in Switzerland.

The recruitment of personnel into Switzerland is notoriously complicated and the labour leasing regulations are extremely strict. Sigma prides itself on providing a compliant and hassle-free framework for clients and consultants, allowing you to concentrate on your core business.

We provide a full range of services for Swiss clients, designed to manage assigned consultants through local registration, work & residency permits, contract setup and end of assignment formalities.  We also provide support and guidance for insurances and other obligations.

Our fully compliant payroll and social security structures ensure peace of mind for all parties involved.

Sigma holds Swiss cantonal and federal labour leasing licenses and is thus fully authorised to place Swiss foreign contractors with companies in Switzerland and abroad.


Swiss Contract Management

Sigma provides a full range of recruitment support services, covering contract management, payroll, tax & social security compliance, local registrations, work permits and general advisory services to clients and consultants.


Companies and individuals operating internationally are usually required to register with foreign tax and social security authorities, and often with the local administration as well. They may be faced with a variety of complex forms and procedures, and offered a number of options.

Following the procedures correctly and making the right choices eases the process of registration and can make a significant difference to fiscal liabilities. Making inappropriate choices can increase corporate overheads, more than doubling costs in some circumstances.

Sigma Management Services specialises in international fiscal consultancy and payroll management. Our approach helps companies and individuals significantly reduce both their fiscal liabilities and the associated administrative burden, helping them optimise the overall use of their resources.

Based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland since 1990, we advise and assist companies and employees with assignments on five continents. At Sigma we believe that individual requirements can only be met through individual solutions; we take time to assess your situation in detail and use our experience to develop a solution that meets your needs.

We use our expertise and experience to:

  • Analyse corporate and employee liabilities arising from foreign assignments
  • Design tailor-made solutions to minimise fiscal and administrative overheads for the employer and the employee, both at home and abroad
