Withholding tax in Switzerland

The most important facts in a nutshell


Swiss citizens pay their taxes at the end of the year. Foreign workers (without a C permit) have their taxes withheld each month by their employer. This is called withholding tax. Employers pay this tax directly to the Swiss tax authorities. The amount varies from canton to canton and can change annually.
