It's most likely that your career brought you to Switzerland, and with over 50% of expats only staying in Switzerland for less than ten years, it's safe to say you probably won’t be here forever.
With that in mind, have you considered what happens to your Swiss based pensions when you leave? Did you know when you leave Switzerland, you can 'encash' your pension and take it with you.
The Three Pillar system operated here, whilst effective, is far from straight forward and when the time comes to pack up your belongings for the next chapter of your journey, the impact on your wealth is not to be underestimated.
However, with a little careful planning, you can ensure you are prepared for all eventualities and ensure you don’t lose any more of your hard-earned cash to the tax man than you have to.
Make sure you make the most of your expat status...
