Re: CHF 650 per month car allowance

I think 650 per month for a car and 100k per year is pathetic and I think you should tell them to stick their job where the sun don`t shine! Hope it helps

Re: CHF 650 per month car allowance

Also depends on who it is leased by - and also how much the balloon payment is.

I have higher monthly payments to have a lower final payment. If the event I want to exit the lease I am unlikely to ever have negative equity.

Though if the car is being leased for work purposes and with company funds, the OP may not actually be interested in ever owning the vehicle.

LOL I really wonder where you people are leasing your cars from!! eg our Swift costs less then 300 chf per month, and our brand new cooper S loaded with a few toys costs less then 400 per month (swift is 4 years, mini is 3 years lease)

if your really paying 900 chf per month for an a3 then someone is seriously taking the pee out of your company.
Donīt know, insurance included, all services, repairs and petrol?

Re: CHF 650 per month car allowance

I do not have idea about how leasing works...but I just have got a A3 with all the extras I choose from my company and I know I have a maximum of 160CHF per month for LEASING.
Until I recieved the car I was getting 1000CHF monthly as a car allowance.

Hi all,

I am really new to Swiss. I feel like my company is offering me too low car allowance and salary. They offered me arround CHF 650 per month Net. I checked arround, and I feel like this is too low. What car can you get for 650 PM? What insuarance could cost?
Is 100K Net per year adequate for a managerial position, multinational co?

Thanks in advance!
You can get a fully loaded Mini Cooper. What more could you possibly want?

We bought outright my fully loaded Mini Cooper for around CHF600 a month. Then when I sold it we got around CHF300 a month back.

ETA: sorry to clarify, I should say we leased to CHF0 residual value as the lease interest rate was better than the loan rate. Also when I say we got CHF300 back when we sold I mean the payment we got for selling divided by the months of the lease it was a bit more than CHF300 per month. So it cost us about CHF300 a month in the end. (whew!)

Re: CHF 650 per month car allowance

I know that my husband has a lease for company car paying CHF550, Audi A4 and I think the lease is for 3 years. We've had company cars for many years and we do like the idea of not paying for any servicing, maintenance, insurance, road tax, petrol....just a bit of extra tax I suppose, but no stress. I don't think I would ever buy my own car for the cost reasons quoted, particularly in CH. We have also a vintage sports car but that's a differen category, that is actually adding value year by year!

I wouldn't sign any car lease that required me to pay for a balloon too.

(The license and storage costs alone would more than offset any presumed savings.)
