Becoming self-employed is a major step – with the right pension provision, however, you can look forward with full confidence to a self-determined future. As a leading provider in the area of pension funds, we can help you with individual solutions.
The majority of company founders are between 35 and 44 years of age
50% of founders are women
82% of newly founded companies have just one employee
Protecting against the consequences of disability and thinking about retirement provision are often neglected during the initial phase of founding a company, as other topics may seem more pressing. And yet company founders, employees and their families are exposed to high financial risks from the outset: for example, they could become seriously ill or have a major accident at any time. This will have consequences for their employees as well. The risks that are to be borne depend on the chosen corporate form. Company founders are also liable for their products – this is another potential financial risk that you should not underestimate.
Plan your self-employment with foresight
You have to invest before making money through your company: a young entrepreneur normally needs capital. If you found a partnership, you can use the vested benefits from the second pillar. This is not allowed if you start a limited liability company (GmbH) or a public limited company (AG). Whether you intend to invest your saved pension assets from the second and/or third pillars in your company, however, should be well thought-out.
From a certain salary amount, you must insure your employees. Normally all individuals earning an annual salary over the BVG threshold are subject to AHV contributions. This is currently CHF 21,330 (as at 2020).
