Store your salary statement, receipts or insurance expenses in UBS Safe
Your personal UBS Safe lets you digitally store private documents in one folder throughout the year. Scan your hardcopy documents with the UBS Safe App or, if they are digital, use the upload function.
Receive and access all relevant digital UBS bank documents directly in UBS Safe
Automatically receive documents relating to your tax return in UBS Safe. You can access these certificates and asset statements in the UBS Safe via the filter category “Tax reporting.”
Save on provisional taxes throughout the year with a standing order
Set aside a fraction of your taxes every month with a standing order. That way the desired amount is available when you need it. You can set up a standing order online in just a few steps.
Automatically pay into pillar 3a
Every year, there is a legally specified maximum amount that you can deduct from your taxable income out of the sum paid into your pillar 3a retirement savings account.
The easiest way to make a payment is via “Payments > Payment to Fisca account” in E-Banking. The maximum permitted amount will then be distributed over the year in monthly or semi-annual payments – and you won’t need to worry about a thing.
Savings tips for the pillar 3a retirement savings account
It’s worth making payments into pillar 3. You can save on taxes depending on where you live and the amount paid in.
As soon as you have accumulated approximately CHF 50,000 in your retirement savings account, you should open an additional account. This will allow you to make staggered withdrawals later in life and save on taxes again, depending on the canton.
If you invest your retirement assets in Vitainvest investment funds, you can benefit from developments on the financial markets. As a result, you will enjoy higher earnings potential until your balance is paid out.
