Re: Postdoc tax question

Just thought I'd throw some very recent figures into the light of day...

I've just accepted a physics PostDoc position at the PSI, 25km outside Zurich, in the Kanton of Aargau. This is my first PostDoc, so I'm deemed to have "no experience" - apparently a little thing like my PhD doesn't count!!!

I've been quoted the following cold, hard figures (I'm single, no kids)...

Gross Annual: 81,000 CHF
Gross Monthly: 6,230.75 CHF (13 months)

AHV (Social Security ): 314.65 CHF
ALV (Unemployment Insurance): 62.30 CHF
NBU (Accident Insurance): 49.00 CHF
Pension Fund "Pubblica": 318.95 CHF

Direct income tax (for foreigner) (12.1%): 753.90 CHF

Net Monthly: 4731.95 CHF

I hope these figures will give others who are thinking of moving to Switzerland something to work with.
