Re: Tax on relocation expenses paid by company in Basel

View Post
Dear all,

I am a Non EU and joining a company in Basel.

I have a few questions regarding taxation if anyone here could help from their experience.

1. The company is paying me relocation allowance in cash as well as accomodation for 3 months. I understand this is taxable income.

2. The company is also arranging movement and storage of my personal belongings through an agent. They will pay to the agent directly. Is this also my taxable income?

3. The company will reimburse the cost of my flight ticket to Basel. Is this a taxable income for me?

Many thanks for your help.


Dear Naynam,

Good to meet you here. I have received a similar relocation offer, which might be the same company as yours. Could you please share with me your experience? At the end, how was the relocation package taxable?
The company told me about CHF 80K value of relocation package (including everything you mention). Does it mean that I will have to pay about 20% or CHF 16K additional tax? Thank you so much.
