Comparis.ch does make that calculation.
Hmmm...could be.
It takes commune into account while this one does not.
But still I don't think it will be totally accurate.

Re: Lohncomputer.ch - Net wages calculator

This site calculated 32% deductions for me, other sites have said much less and so do my colleagues on the same grade as me and I'm not a high earner. I thought Switzerland was supposed to have much lower taxes than the UK, this doesn't seem to make much difference.

That site calculated for you 32% in deductions, not 32% in taxes. Your pension fund makes up a sizable chuck of those deductions.

What canton are you living in? A single person without kids in Zurich would have to be earning about CHF20,000 a month to pay 32% in total.

In Canton Vaud the figure is CHF10,000 per month. Both very high wages.

Re: Lohncomputer.ch - Net wages calculator

They're so exact (not) they have a graph of the quellensteuer/source income tax for 25 cantons. Yes they forgot Geneva Canton.

Trustworthy eh? But it's made with love in Cologne according to the site.

I still think it only gives a ball park figure.
There are a lot of variable deductions which these dont consider.
For some this figure seems fine....for others not.

Re: Lohncomputer.ch - Net wages calculator

I know this thread is old but just a word of warning should anyone search for this website, like I've just done.

Last year my income dropped considerably and at the same time, I was no longer taxed at source. I used Lohncomputer to guestimate how much tax money to set aside each month. The amount is calculated was a lower % than I was previously paying but I put this down to the fact that I was now in a lower tax bracket. How wrong I was!

At the end of the year, I was short by 40%. ie. I only had 60% of the money I needed to pay the due tax.
