There are bunch of defined tax breaks in Zurich for workers considered to be 'temporary foreign specialists'.
The question is whether you will get an equivalent gross salary, in which case its worth making sure that those tax breaks are applied, as its you that will be better off, or whether your company will ensure you get the same net salary in which case lower taxes (for example) will be to their benefit rather than yours.
social charges should remain payable in your home country.
A daily subsistence allowance is what most people ask for ..
Good Luck !
I've been poached by HQfor a 5+ month secondment in Zurich and am about to start negotiations..
Have never been on secondment, and have no idea how different life/cost of living etc..is from OZ or the UK.. any tips from anyone who's gone through similar? So farI knowthey will provide accommodation, but not sure on what else todemand(!).. as I dont knowhow longI will be in ZurichI need to make sure I'm coving all my basis.
