    I'd suspect that it isn't the Swiss clients, nor even a Swiss agency. Just some dumb agency or agencies who are lazy. Switzerland has committed to 3500 work-permits, post brexit, to be reserved for British people wishing to work here, so it's really unlikely it's the Swiss telling you to get stuffed.

    Would you be applying anyway under the understanding that you are "in theory" still under the same rights until December 2020, or am I deluding myself and the Europeans are basically going to shun us until we hand over some fish or something...?
    They've been doing this in Germany for years, nothing new although I suspect with the new Fachkräfteeinwanderungsgesetzes that is to come into effect shortly ther might be some changes
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I'm currently working in Switzerland, most agencies that contact me are not Swiss, and have very little knowledge of Swiss regulations.

    As stated by NotAllThere, Switzerland was the first country to sign an agreement with the UK. My understanding is everything will basically be the same as it was before.

    So if I supply services remotely from the UK to a Swiss company will this require a work permit post December? I also have dual nationality UK/Irish inc passport which I understand would make me a EU citizen also?

    It you have an Irish (or other EU) passport, you still need a work permit to work in Switzerland - but you get one automatically. There is no quota, they're issued on application. You go to the local council offices with your contract, complete the paperwork, pay some money and you're done.

    Germany has specifically said that they are not going to do that.

    Furthermore, if you are working remotely, then you don't need a work permit in Switzerland at all.

    Yes I have been working that way for Swiss clients for quite a few years now.
