Re: Postdoc tax question

Thank you muze7, your information is useful indeed!

In my case, the employer's contribution for social security are taken also from the mobility allowance and carreer allowance. As the document you cited explains under "MOBILITY", this is possible depending on national law.

I got the following information from my university:
58656 EUR living + 7488 EUR mobility = 66144 EUR
exchange rate 1.55 -> 102523 CHF
-14% employers deductions
= 88170 CHF brut
I do not know yet about my net salary.

By the way, in Germany it seems that allowances are all free from any deductions (not even tax are taken away):

I will take a look to the 1500 CHF free-of-tax amount you mentioned at a later time, thanks for this advice!
