Even though Switzerland is a small country, its people speak no less than four different languages: German, French, Italian and Rhaeto-Romanic.
Our office is located in the German speaking part of Switzerland. However, Swiss speak a different form of German than the Germans or Austrians, called “Swiss-German” or “Schweizerdeutsch”. But no need to worry, everybody understands High German and fortunately, standard German is used for writing.
It is important for you to know that we offer our services almost exclusively in the German speaking part of Switzerland and that it is important for our consultants to be able to communicate with our customers in German. Due to the diverse cultures, beginner’s mistakes are forgiven when they realize that you are making an effort in learning the language.
Many companies in Switzerland operate internationally, therefore it is an advantage if you can also speak English. Workshops are often held in English and it is common that international companies require or provide documents in English.
Living in Switzerland
Moving to Switzerland
Moving to a new Country is a significant decision. There are many aspects that must be considered, from cost-effective tax planning to selecting the right school for accompanying children. You can find very helpful information for some of the issues faced by individuals relocating to at the following webpage:
By subscribing to various dedicated websites, vacancies can be found, but information may be limited as properties are not always advertised on the internet due to the short vacant period between renters.
Acting quickly is highly recommendable as properties are usually rented in a short amount of time.
- The purchase of property can take time and will also affect an individual’s tax situation (see our separate section on the tax issues related to real estate).
- The advice of a qualified real estate professional should be sought when purchasing a property in Switzerland, as they can explain the various fees that will be due upon purchase, including transfer taxes, notary fees, and land register fees (approximately 6 – 7% of the purchase price should be budgeted for these fees).
- The Bilateral Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons provides that, effective 1 June 2002, an EU/EFTA national holding a residence permit and resident in Switzerland enjoys the same rights as Swiss citizens with regard to the purchase of real estate.
- In addition, C permit holders, regardless of nationality, have the same rights as Swiss citizens to purchase real estate.
- Those individuals can acquire real estate in Switzerland such as a principal residence or a second home, a holiday home, land to build on, or an investment in a property.
Social Security and Pensions
Swiss social security contributions are mandatory for residents of Switzerland (except for minors), unless covered by a valid exemption through continued membership in the home country’s system. In this case a Certificate of Coverage must be obtained from the authorities in the home country through the home country employer. The Swiss social security system is based on a three – pillar system as follows:
- Pillar I (state pension): The first pillar consists of old age and survivor’s insurance, as well as invalidity insurance and a pension intended to cover the employee’s basic living costs upon retirement. Pillar I contributions are mandatory for both salaried employees and self employed individuals.
- Pillar II (occupational pension scheme): The second pillar includes the same benefits as Pillar I and, together with Pillar I, should amount to at least 60% of the beneficiary’s last income and allow pensioners to maintain the standard of living to which they are accustomed. Pillar II contributions are mandatory for salaried workers only.
- Pillar III (private pension scheme): The third pillar represents an additional savings plan for individuals to meet their further retirement needs and is optional for all individuals, although it offers tax benefits that may not be available with other forms of savings.
Pensions (Pillar II)
As with Swiss social security (first pillar), affiliation to a pension fund (second pillar) is mandatory for all Swiss employees below retirement age (currently 64 years for women and 65 years for men) and therefore every Swiss employer must establish or join a recognized Swiss pension scheme.
In Switzerland, taxes are levied at three levels: By the federal government, the cantons and the municipalities. The Federal Constitution clearly regulates which taxes the Confederation may levy. The Federal Constitution also regulates which taxes the cantons are not allowed to levy.
In principle, the cantons are free to decide which taxes they want to levy. Each of the 26 cantons has its own tax law and taxes income, assets, inheritances, capital gains, real estate gains and other tax objects differently. The municipalities also levy taxes. However, the cantonal tax laws regulate which taxes they may levy. In many cases, the municipalities levy their taxes in the form of surcharges on the cantonal tax(municipal tax rate) or they receive a portion of the cantonal tax revenue.
The specific tax payment to be expected depends on the chosen place of residence. Tax calculator scan be found at www.homegate.ch, for example. A further good source for all sorts of up to date information and comparisons is www.comparis.ch.
