Leaving Switzerland Permanently to India

Dear Folks

I'm a newbie to this topic and appreciate your valuable help and guidance.

Below describes best on my current situation
- Myself and my Wife both Indian nationalities and relocated to Switzerland on Oct-18
- Iím working in a swiss organization on a local employment contract and paying towards swiss social security contributions like AHV/IV/EO, ALV and BVG Contributions.
- I'm having a Swiss work permit Type B renewed every year.
- Also, Iím paying my taxes in the form of withholding taxes deducted at source every month.
- My wife is not working and she is a homemaker.

I'm planning to leave Switzerland permanently and settle in India by this year-end i.e. Dec-20, which accounts for my effective working period in Switzerland to 2 years and 3 months.

Appreciate if you folks can guide on below.

1) Which all the contributions (AHV/IV/EO, ALV , BVG ) I make are eligible to claim for a refund?

2) Will I get the refund of the entire contribution (100%) or if some deductions applicable?

2) Does any Withhold Tax applicable / or I need to pay for the above refunds prior leaving Switzerland?

3) Do I get these refunds credited in my swiss bank prior I leave Switzerland or only after leaving Switzerland?

4) What is the claiming procedure and approx. timelines involved in processing.

Your valuable feedback helps me a lot in making my movement planning much better in advance and avoiding last minute hassles.

Thanks, and Regard
Venkat V

Hey there,

What I found useful is the link below


I sent them the request for the calculation. The reply somewhat disappointment me . Bottom-line, it was almost the amount that I personally contributed, which was lower than I expected, knowing that there is equal employer contribution.

Hope it helps. Cheers
