Re: Swiss pensions consolidated summary

Do you know how AVS contributions are calculated for the owners / shareholders of GmbH?

Do they need to be "employed" by the company they own and pay themselves a minimum salary in order NOT to have their AVS contributions calculated on the basis of their wealth? What is the minimum salary (per couple) as one spouse can be employed and they can be making sufficient AVS contributions in order to meet the quota for a married couple?

Are there any exceptions for entrepreneurs who are setting up a new business so that they are not considered persons without employment that therefore need to pay on basis of wealth? Usually businesses take a few years to make a profit. Do Swiss have any benefits, tax breaks or incentives for new businesses being set up?

Does AVS contribution amount differ from Canton to Canton?

Does one need to pay where one lives or where GmbH is registered?

Thanks
AVS is calculated on salary paid by company.
AVS is never calculated on wealth
There is a minimum AVS payment for people who don't work, approx but not exactly 475 a year.
AVS is the same in all cantons
