Becoming self-employed and setting up a company isn’t easy. Even before you can start issuing invoices, there are numerous hurdles to overcome.

For example, you need to decide on a legal structure, raise the necessary capital, arrange personal insurance (collective daily illness allowance, accident insurance, occupational pension provision), keep accounts and settle OASI, to name just a few. And as if that weren’t enough, you also lose your entitlement to unemployment benefits.

„The social insurance and cover for all the employed is an important key topic for the SECO (State Secretariat for Economic Affairs), the federal council and PayrollPlus. PayrollPlus developed new, payable and easy employment models and a salary payment tool due to the digitalization. In the future there are 500’000 freelancers, self-employed, corporates and households profiting from PayrollPlus and therefore be socially insured.“

Edgar Weber CEO PayrollPlus, founded in 1989
