...In any case it is disadvantageous to people paying tax through PAYE as each month is individually calculated thus when you have a large additional payment in one month you move up the tax bracket and lose more than if you simply were paid x% more per year spread evenly. ...
Richard, I'm in need of some more of your wisdom in this regard (or anyone else that can help). I'm teaching a course at a university this term. According to their rules, I won't get paid until the course is complete, which means that I will get an extra 17,000 CHF probably on my February pay-cheque. Is there anything that I can do to avoid being taxed exorbitantly that month, and if I am then how do I claim the extra tax back? I'd rather not wait more than one year to claim it back.
