Level of Tax on the Pension

Hi All,
I have been searching through the forum in order to find how much will be the taxation on the pension but i couldn't find a specific figure.
The canton is Bern

Any ideas?
Thank you

Re: Level of Tax on the Pension

You need to be more specific. Are you talking about a Swiss or foreign pension? Annual pension or lump sum?

Regular Swiss pension is generally taxed same as any other income

Provided that i will stay here and enjoy the pension i need to know how much i will pay taxes.
If it is too much and i cannot afford a decent life here i will go back to Canada.
Thankyou

Pension is taxed the same as earned income.

Re: Level of Tax on the Pension

If you take a pension, ie yearly payments, then its the same as income.

If you withdraw the lumpsum, depends where you live. Use this:
