It’s been a real pleasure working with The Business Harbour. Our exchanges have always been lovely. The team is extremely reactive and has always been able to answer my questions. I strongly recommend The Business Harbour to any person looking for a professional and reliable salary hosting firm.

Given the complexities of working as a consultant in Switzerland as a foreigner, The Business Harbour has been instrumental in facilitating both my legal and administrative needs, saving me the time and worry of having to manage this directly. The Business Harbour was also extremely helpful in advising me on the legalities of working as a consultant for the UN, and other international and Swiss organizations, to ensure that I could remain on a C permit, and were happy to communicate with these organizations on my behalf, no matter how time-consuming. If you are looking for a personalized and professional service, I can highly recommend the Business Harbour.

The Business Harbour has been instrumental in the setting-up of our legal entity in Switzerland, first by hiring me through salary hosting as the Country Manager for the company, then facilitating the legal work with one of their trusted partners and ensuring the payroll for the newly created entity in Switzerland.

The Business Harbour has always demonstrated agility, flexibility and “can do” attitude to find the best solution for my company and for me, personally, with the right attention to the quality and cost of the service required. I would strongly recommend Business Harbour as a business partner.
My gratitude to the team for being so welcoming, and attentive to human and professional aspects.

Amid the Covid-19 crisis, The Business Harbour helped me carrying out an assignment while maintaining an employee status. A real springboard that allowed me to join the company as a full employee afterwards. 

The Business Harbour has a fluid and caring communication; the team is positive and responsive, whilst providing a personalized support. I recommend The Business Harbour without hesitation.

It was a real pleasure working with the Business Harbour team for the 15 months that I had the support of their services as a free-lancer. They are serious professionals on which I could rely, always ready to help and advise and very friendly ! I will definitely work with them again.

“I recommend The Business Harbour to anyone who is looking for a solid, secure, Swiss, dedicated salary hosting service partner”

I had the opportunity to work for a company in Lausanne as a consultant. However, I did not want to work as a freelancer, so I started looking for a solution. I had no clue about salary hosting.

The Business Harbour has been very pro-active from day 1, providing me with simulations and giving me specific answers for my particular situation as a Geneva resident. They were particularly smart and sharp in addressing the legal and tax aspects. I started my assignment with my client the next day, and the administrative part was all handled by The Business Harbour.

I’m totally comfortable as I get all the paperwork taken care of as well as on-time payments of my salary, together with an excellent support service. I’m delighted with their service and I recommend The Business Harbour to anyone who is looking for a solid, secure, Swiss, dedicated salary hosting service partner.

Over the span of almost three years, I have worked for two biotech start-ups facilitated through The Business Harbour. Salary hosting is an ideal solution as it has offered me the flexibility and the structure that I required. I would highly recommend this solution, which gives both a good framework to employees and also provides small companies with key competences they may lack in-house.
It has been a pleasure to work with and feel the support of a highly professional team, always very helpful and available whenever I needed them. With The Business Harbour, consultants are treated not as just a “number”, but much more on a personal level working with a team who accompany us during our consulting journey.
