24k/year

Hello.
My partner is European and is arriving in Zh in a few days on probably an L permit.
She will be starting a temporary position in Zh that may be turned into a permanent position after 6 months (which is why I think it will be an L permit) . The job has been classified by the employer as a traineeship. She will be joining along with 30 others. The company does these group interview days and hires large numbers. Her salary will be 24k PA so over the 6 months she will make 12K before tax.


Are there any tax reductions/help for people who earn so little?

She is pretty much on her own.

Re: 24k/year

She won't pay much tax because she doesn't earn much but her question should be how she's going to actually live on such a small amount?

I think she can get subsidised health insurance (search the forum) but on that amount of money, basic existence here is going to be pretty challenging.

Re: 24k/year

I assume she is going to live with OP, so there should be no problem at all.

Re: 24k/year

In addition to tax (which will be little), there are various deductions (AHV, etc).

Yes that's correct, shell live with me. That is besides the point. I am going to have to pay for her. I am not rich by any means!


Now, subsidised health insurance, that's the sort of stuff I wanted to know about. Ill look that up. Anything else like that?




Thanks for your comments so far.

If it's a trainee scheme, is it affiliated with any kind of school? Perhaps you could find out if there are any reductions / benefits to being a student.

Not in 2019 she can't. A requirement is that she was resident in ZH on 1 January.

Its not a school, its an employer that has offices worldwide. The only benefit they mentioned to her was something about opening an account with UBS for some rubbish reason or other - I don't recall but it wasn't even worth mentioning...

Could be that health insurance will be subsidized.

Re: 24k/year

L permit and "traineeship" is the new salary dumping scheme. Happens in construction work, too.

Re: 24k/year

I might be wrong, but I remember hearing that if you take help, such as reduced health insurance premiums, that in future this can cause you problems when it comes to permit renewal. They offer you the reduction, but then won't renew your permit because you are now considered unable to support yourself. So be careful!

NOT true if you move into ZH from abroad (only applies if from different Kanton where you would have to apply instead).

Only if you apply for C you will be required to show you haven’t received Sozialhilfe. This does not apply to health insurance premium subsidies. 25% of the population receives these to some extent: https://m.tagesanzeiger.ch/articles/...5c377608000001

Re: 24k/year

If she shares a household and other people in the household earn enough would she still qualify for subsidised healthcare?

In ZH yes. But apparently in AG not.
