|What taxes and social charges will I pay?|
Home > FAQ > Self employment > Taxes
As a self-employed person, you pay only personal taxes. The tax rates depend on the canton and city where you operate the business from (or your home if you have a home office), of the size of your family and the level of income. First you pay an income taxof maximum of around 35%. Then there is social security with a maximum of 9% (you see this one back when you are 65). Finally, you need to charge Swiss clients VAT at 7.6% if your business is big enough. Small business are exempted from VAT and as well as most sales outside Switzerland.
