100K (junior), 140k, 180k (in CHF)?

The upper two would depend on how senior. What do others think?

It does depend on where you live, marital status, religion, etc. Taxes vary by region.

Re: Greetings from UK, possibly coming to live in Baar, Zug.

Would need a few more facts, e.g. single, married, kids?
If single & no kids, would be comfortable between 100K & 120K however depends if you have family would need more esp if they are young & your wife/partner is working as childcare very expensive

Think in terms of twice what you get net in the UK, using 2 CHF to the things will cost roughly the same as in the UK.

Re: Greetings from UK, possibly coming to live in Baar, Zug.

Use your current salary figure and double it. That would mean you move for a small increase and can deal with cost of living here.

not if you are living in London though
Actually I really don't know why people keep saying this.. the taxes in the UK are very high! Maybe it can make sense if you double your net pay ..(still not if you are currently living and earning in London, London rents are even higher than Zurich)

Re: Greetings from UK, possibly coming to live in Baar, Zug.

We were living and working in London before we moved here. I gave up my job and we just have my husbands salary here and that more than works. Rent Is more expensive here and there is much less flat sharing goes on so you are quite often responsible for your own rent on a whole flat. However taxes are lower, cost of living is a bit higher and salaries are also higher. I Think you would be better off here.

Re: Greetings from UK, possibly coming to live in Baar, Zug.

Like for like living standards, and not minimum required:

The low bound (minimum) then, gross pay would need to be higher in Switzerland than the UK for the same standard, using prevailing exchange rate. At a maximum gross pay would need to be 2 CHF per 1 sterling. This takes into account lower taxes in Switzerland.

Do those seem reasonable lower/upper bounds?

140k is great - remember so much is deductible from Tax's. And housing in Baar in not that expensive compared to Zug. Been in Baar 4 months and loving it. Good Luck with it all.
