Increase of maximum contributions to pillar 3a as of 01.01. 2021

The amounts for paying into pillar 3a have been adjusted.


You can deduct payments into the Pillar 3a retirement savings account from your taxable income. In this way, you save taxes and at the same time provide for later. The maximum contributions have been increased as of 01.01.2021. We would like to remind you to adjust your standing order. Newly applicable:


Employed persons with pension fund                     CHF 6,883
Employed persons without pension fund max.      CHF 34'416 (max. 20% of net income)

WHAT we do is not unique, but HOW we do it!
