Reducing your tax bill / Tips
Reducing your tax bill
It is advisable to seek the advice of competent bodies in order to manage your assets as effectively as possible and, in particular, to reduce the amount of tax you pay.
Pension provisions are encouraged in Switzerland through tax breaks.
For example, the purchase of statutory 2nd pillar benefits and the creation of a 3rd pillar (3a pillar only) can be deducted from taxable income (please note that there is a ceiling on the amounts).
- Check with your pension fund whether you can buy supplementary benefits
- Contact your bank/insurance company about taking out a 3rd pillar.
Taxes in Switzerland are a complex subject to understand. If you have any questions, we strongly recommend that you take precautions and consult a fiduciary or an expert in the field.
