I got the following information from my university:
58656 EUR living + 7488 EUR mobility = 66144 EUR
exchange rate 1.55 -> 102523 CHF
-14% employers deductions
= 88170 CHF brut
Here some more info. Although slightly embarrassing to release such info, it might help some people starting a MC or similar fellowship in Switzerland / Vaud. From the 88170/12 = 7347 monthly, I pay
5.05% AVS (first pillar rent)
1.00% AC (unemployment)
0.63% ANP/SUVA (accident insurance)
4.81 % pension, second pillar
15.6 % tax (impot a la source)

This leaves me with 5354 CHF (that is, 27% deductions). As discussed above, however, my living allowance also covers employers contributions. This is:
5.05 % AVS
1.00 % AC
0.63% ANP/SUVA
2.67 % pension, second pillar
6.93 % other stuff

The last item includes insurance for the case that I cannot work any more. It also covers a margin for special circumstances (e.g., if I would have a baby, currency fluctuations etc). At the end of the year, I think, I will receive the remaining margin. Also, when I leave Switzerland, I would expect that I get some of the pension contributions back.

Re: Postdoc tax question

Hi all,

Reviving an old thread, but does anyone (muze7?) know anything about the tax implications for Marie Curie postdocs please? I'm trying to work out my likely net income but this is a bit onfusing because of all the various allowances involved in the scheme, so wonderd if anyone else has experience they could share?

Thanks!

If any of you here are Marie Curie Fellows, please post, as the tax story is a bit different then as I will then explain if you are interested.
Hello,
I know you posted this some time ago, but I just got a Marie Curie fellowship and was curious about what you knew about taxes etc in this case.
Thanks in advance !
Best,
jopalm

Marie Curie question

I've recently been awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship to work in the USA and Switzerland. Salary will be paid by the university in Switzerland, for which they need a Swiss account. However, I will be resident in the US for the first two years. From what I read, Swiss banks don't like opening accounts for US residents any more. Does anyone have any similar experience or suggestions as to ways around this issue?
Thanks!
Tom

Hi,

I will be a Marie Curie Fellow in ETH Zuerich (Basel Campus), but for the first two years I will be in the US. However, during this time in US I will be employed under ETH rules. Does this mean that I will have also to pay all these taxes mentioned above? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Than

The tax arrangements for Marie Curie fellows are very unusual indeed and vary widely according to the tax laws/agreements of the countries involved - I'd consider asking one of the advisors from the fellowship programme, if you haven't already.

Hi Quark!

thanks for your response. Indeed, I have asked them but they just forwarded me the fellowship guide for IOF fellowships from the EU. There it is stated that the living allowance is subjected to the social security contributions and direct taxes. This is something that I can understand for the incoming phase, when I am in Switzerland. However, I cannot understand how it can be that during the outgoing phase I am in US, paid by ETH but receive from ETH a salary taxed at source without living in Switzerland.

Anybody with a similar experience in this?

Re: Postdoc tax question

Hey all, for the 'impots a la source' their are some possibilities to make some huge savings, and many people do not know that, I have to look through my papers and find the official document where you can fill some information, like how many miles you drive to go to work, and where you eat and everything, PM me if you are interested, with some good filling in of the form you can do 15% saving on that If I remenber right.
