Re: Withdrawing Swiss Pension after Leaving Switzerland

View Post
Hello All,

I left Switzerland to live in a non EU country at the end of 2011, at the time I transferred my pension funds into a pension account in UBS Bank.

I would now like to withdraw this money, is it possible to with draw it at a less tax rate by depositing this money into a bank of another Canton? and Which Canton would be better?
Helo Mirkazim,

When you are living outside the EU, you can withdraw the total of your pension fund assets (vested pension benefits). You will be charged with a withholding tax as per the canton of Zurich.
I recommend to have your assets transfered to the canton with the lowest taxes in Switzerland, you will roughly save 50% in taxes.
Contact me for further details, o.k.? Kind regards Marcel
