How much will I get on my hands?

Dear forumers,

I was offered a job in Zürich, not a great one, but it says that I will get 43.000 francs gross.

minus all taxes and social welfare and bla bla bla, what will the real money I will have on my hands be?

thanks for your answers!

Hi, presumably that's your income p.a., otherwise it's a great income!

There's a tax calculator for Zürich here. It's best that you fill it out yourself as there are a lot of variables to consider.

Hope this helps.

Yes, it is per annum. unfortunately... :-)

But thanks for the link, it is very helpful!

You're welcome.

Don't forget about the cost of compulsory health insurance (not a tax; you need to take out a health insurance policy with a health fund here). You'll find threads here on English Forum (use the search function at the top of the screen) on this subject that should help you.

Good luck!

I may be mistaken, but that sounds to me like close to minimum wages...

I couldn't say exactly, but you'll certainly be living on less than 4000 CHF per month net. Given that rents in Zurich tend to start around the thousand mark, and that the cost of living is so high, you will have to maintain a somewhat ascetic existence.

It is not impossible, but it won't be champagne and strawberries either.

I'm guessing that your monthly net will be well below CHF 4,000 per month, Fiditti, given that your monthly gross is CHF 3,583! (And if you're to be paid in 13 installments, as is common, it'll be just over CHF 3,300 gross.) So maybe you'll need to befriend a purveyor of champagne and strawberries, and/or find share accommodation.

Good luck in your decision-making!
