Liechtenstein - Income comparison with Switzerland - January 31, 2016

The government commissioned research to the Liechtenstein-Institute that deals with income comparisons between Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Main question was the differences between the gross and the net income. The researchers took into account the purchase power of households, the consumption patterns and the costs of housing. After deductions of tax and social security payments and of the costs of living, transport and housing the conclusion is that around 60% of the income is disposable for other expenditure - in Switzerland this is 50%. Living in Liechtenstein is thus more attractive. Moreover, the gross wages are higher.
