Social Security and Pension

 

Our dedicated team provides advice on all matters relating to domestic and international social security and pension obligations. We cover the full range of state social security (pillar 1), mandatory and supra-mandatory pension (pillar 2) and voluntary savings (pillar 3).

 

Clients we serve include corporate entities, high-profile managers, payroll providers and entrepreneurs. In our daily practice, we closely interact with our in-house tax and employment teams in order to provide our clients with comprehensive and hands-on support. Our collaboration with Swiss authorities and an expert network further contributes to our practice oriented guidance.
