What type of international work will I be doing and how do I do it?
posted by Tchad to law & government (9 answers total)
I have two students/clients who are in Zürich and Vienna respectively. They want me to come teach privately in the Summer of 2011.
I think I will need more than a tourist visa for this, but am not sure what to call what I need.
Here are the details I have now:
-Each client would be reserving the work-space we need in either city.
-Classes would be mainly for English-speaking ex-pats.
-6 students per class, maybe 8 classes total.
-Classes would run 10 weeks - maybe June - August.
-They would pay me directly, probably in US$ but maybe Euros.
-They would house me.
-I go home after 10 or 11 weeks.
So when I call the powers that be, how do I describe this? Does this kind of temporary private employment have a legal name?
(Other secondary questions -
Will it even be possible? Would it be better if a business brought me over? Can the LLC I run (and own) now function internationally? Do I need a lawyer to do this, or can I handle it myself?
I am more focused on what to call it than the other questions right now, but feel free to chime in if you have answers to these, too.)
I want to start planning this, but want to do it right and honestly. I guess I am looking for key words I can use to talk to the representative (and do my own research beforehand) so that they understand what I am trying to do and don't think that I want to set up shop permanently in either place or make money under the table while pretending to be only a tourist. I know I could slide by by doing it in cash on a regular visit, but have found honest, above-board business dealings are usually my best bet.
So - links? terms? thoughts?
