For whom ?

The formula is open to all sectors and is aimed in particular at : Juniors, who want to manage their assignments and working hours, Experienced professionals planning to set up their own company and train accordingly, Seniors who wish to continue their career as an employee, despite the hiring difficulties associated with their age, Self-employed cross-border workers wishing to set up their business in Switzerland.


To qualify for freelance administration, you need to meet one of three conditions: work and reside in Switzerland, work in Switzerland and reside abroad (cross-border worker), reside in Switzerland and work abroad (“detached worker”).

They can only work for a company authorized to hire out labor in Switzerland. Upskills will take care of all the administrative formalities.

How does it work in practice?

The contractor defines a set of specifications and the fees he intends to charge his customers.

For each mandate, Upskills establishes a contract with the contractor (one per customer) with a Consulting Services framework agreement.

Upskills establishes an expert provision contract for the customer, as well as a Consulting Service framework agreement.

What are the advantages?

– The contractor’s client is invoiced monthly, based on the consultant’s activity report (within a 30-day payment period). – The employee is paid monthly, on the 5th of the month following payment by the customer. – Salaries can also be paid without waiting for payment from the customer (in this case, an additional fee of 2% applies to cover the risk).

How much does it cost?

The management fee is 5% of invoiced amounts, with no minimum remuneration. An optional fee of 2% applies if you wish to be remunerated in advance, without waiting for payment from the customer.
