In numerous of our assignments, we are in a lively exchange with suitable candidates from Germany. They often express concerns about moving to Switzerland, especially because of the expected higher cost of living. Over the past few years, we have noticed on many occasions a need for guidance and that often inadequate comparisons are applied. In order to meet the need for transparency in terms of expenses and income for both the client and the candidate, we have developed a comparative tool, which calculates the required gross salary for a “fair” transfer to Switzerland. The goal is for the new comparable gross salary in Switzerland to allow the candidate to save the same share of their earnings as in Germany. By fair, we assume no loss in the quality of life. With the help of this “Transfair” calculator, you can easily compare the current financial situation in Germany with the expected financial circumstances in Switzerland. This means that the transfer calculator takes into account the current gross salary, personal taxes, social security contributions, insurance, housing costs, food and consumer goods, telecommunications, transport and childcare, and uses this to calculate a new theoretically required gross salary. This provides the candidate with a rough idea and initial guidance as to what a move to Switzerland might imply on financial terms. On the basis of this information, we are happy to direct candidates to experts in the field to precisely calculate the consequences of moving to Switzerland.
