registered partnership effect on salary

I have a question regarding registered partnership.
I am a non-Eu(male) working in Geneva (with Permit B), and my girlfriend is also studying in Geneva (with permit B as well).
My question is about registered partnership (with opposite sex of course), and how should we announce it to Geneva population service, how much does it cost and what will be effect on my salary? is registered partnership treated as marriage in the case of salary? (my girlfriend is not receiving salary)

I don't think it has any effect on your salary, or if it does, that's something you need to discuss wit your employer and not the authorities.

It may influence your taxes though.

No.

"The Canton of Geneva has had a partnership law on cantonal level since 2001. It grants unmarried couples, whether same-sex or opposite-sex, many rights, responsibilities and protections that married couples have. However, it does not allow benefits in taxation, social security, or health insurance premiums"

Swiss Authorities Online (ch.ch) has a page on "Consequences of Registered Partnership". Might be useful:

That's only for same-sex couples.

Opposite sex partnerships don't exist on a federal level, just in a couple cantons.

It only exists in Geneva and Neuchâtel at the moment and as Tom rightly pointed out it has no effect whatsoever on taxes.

or health insurance premiums
Does being married affect your health insurance premiums? We never informed our health insurance of our marriage.

No, as (basic) health insurance premiums are based on your age bracket and place of residence.

The only time marriage might affect your premiums is if you change from individual insurance policies to a family insurance policy. For a family insurance policy all insured people must be insured with the same health insurance company. Not sure if the definition of "family" which makes you eligible for family insurance policies includes at least one child, though.


What does change upon marriage is the amount of your possible health insurance subsidy (if you are eligible and apply in time).

Basically you can't have one in Vaud from the sounds of it. You'll have to get married. Registered partnerships are only for same-sex couples in most of Switzerland.

No, I have moved to Geneva recently, So from what I understood registerd partnership(For opposite sex) exists in Geneva, but has no effect on tax?
I was confused because on comparis.ch it was calculating the tax of registered partnership(when your Partner does not work) very low:

Re: registered partnership effect on salary

The Pacs and a registered partnership are not the same thing at all. Pacs is inspired by the French equivalent, it is just a way of proving that one lives together without getting married. Same sex partnership is closer to mariage, it is actually mariage minor a couple of rights (mostly family law and adoption).
