The Communes of the Canton of Geneva


The Canton of Geneva with its 45 communes has a population of around 450,000 people (2010). Somewhat more than 35% of the population are holding a foreign passport.

Communes in Switzerland are powerful governmental organizations that have, within the Cantonal and Federal constitution powers of self government. In the smaller communes the elected officials are part time politicians, who do this as a side job.

The most important element that affects its inhabitants are the levels of income tax charged by the commune. This can vary from one commune to the next.The communes budget is mainly financed from the collection of income tax and a Cantonal equalization fund that helps the poorer communes.

In addition to the local tax, there is a federal income tax as well. But most new arrivals, (working under a Permit B), will have their taxes deducted at source. Only after you receive a permanent residence permit (Permit C) will you pay the taxes yourself. VAT, that is the sales tax, which is the same all over Switzerland (7.25%) is collected by the federal government, not the commune.

The commune is also important when you want to become a Swiss citizen.They confer communal citizenship, based on which you will get Cantonal citizenship on which the Federal citizenship is based. The rules of the single process, at the different levels, are now the same all over Switzerland.
