2021 - How much can you contribute to Pillar 3a?
Persons affiliated to a pension fund (generally employees): can make maximum contributions for the year 2021 of CHF 6883 /year. Those who are not affiliated to a pension fund (generally self-employed): they can make contributions of 20% of their income, but up to a maximum of CHF 34,128/year.
Deducting the 3rd pillar from taxes
For tax deduction purposes, the amounts paid into pillar 3a from 01.01.2021 to 31.12.2021 are taken into account. Then, between January and February 2022, you will receive the certificate from the company with which you have concluded the third pillar to attach to your tax declaration. If you have more than one third pillar, you will of course receive a certificate for each contract, but in any case the total may not exceed the maximum deductible for the year 2021. Thus, the sum of the premiums paid to the third pillar 3A will be deducted from your taxable income. If, on the other hand, you are taxed at source, e.g. B permits or cross-border commuters, you will have to apply for Ordinary Additional Taxation (TOU) at the withholding tax office by 31 March of the following year in order to be able to take advantage of the tax deduction.
