Re: Withdraw 2nd Pillar buy property abroad while leaving Switzerland

On the contrary - pension fund withdrawals for this purpose are taxed at a preferential rate that varies between cantons - the worst case is around 4.75% flat rate while some cantons have progressive scale (for example, Geneva will only take 1% of CHF 50K, climbing up to around 2.75% if taking out 100K).
Once you leave Switzerland it's the canton on the institution holding the money that taxes it, not the one in which you were resident.
Is it possible that the pensions saving drawdown is also taxable in the new country of residence?
