Salary certificate

For each tax year, the salary certificate for the preparation of your tax return is normally available in your MyUnil account at the end of January of the following year :


  1. My account

  2. My salary data

  3. "Documents de salaire"

  4. Annual salary certificate

Anyone who does not have access to MyUnil will continue to receive their salary certificate by post to their private address.

Please take note of the following considerations regarding the tax return:

The tax authorities of each canton have specified the methods for determining deductible expenses, particularly those related to teleworking. Therefore, the mention "UNIL has respected the cantonal and federal instructions or recommendations regarding teleworking. However, when an employee's activities could not be carried out by teleworking, they were carried out on site" has been added under figure 15 of the salary certificates of UNIL employees.

As far as Vaud taxpayers are concerned, the Direction générale de la fiscalité du canton de Vaud has specified in particular that, when drawing up the tax return, the number of days taken into account for the deduction of travel and meal expenses must be reduced by the days spent teleworking. If necessary, the tax authority may ask the taxpayer to justify the number of days worked on site. In this case, it is the employer who will be able to certify this information provided that it has been entered into the relevant tools.

For any additional information related to the tax provisions of your canton of residence or domicile, please refer to the tax administration of your canton.

Supplementary coverage for accidents abroad:

Following on from the request made by the International Relations Office, the University of Lausanne has purchased supplementary insurance cover from the Bâloise insurance company for accidents that occur abroad.

With basic cover, medical costs are reimbursed only up to double the equivalent price in Switzerland. Bâloise insurance addresses this by offering unlimited cover for the price of CHF 250 per calendar year. Premiums are payable by the employee and will be deducted automatically from his or her salary.

You will find all the necessary information in the attached form, which can be returned up to 30 November for cover valid from 1 January for the calendar year.



The Human Resources department is pleased to announce a number of changes regarding the amounts allocated to family allowances.

CHF 1,500 The allowance is doubled in the case of a multiple birth or simultaneous adoption of more than one child (the ACV pays CHF 1,600 to eligible employees).


The ACV has implemented this directive since 1 September 2016 and family allowances will be paid to you according to your actual entitlements in our payroll system.

As a reminder, one of the objectives of RIE III is to support the purchasing power of families by increasing family allowances, by decreasing health costs through consolidating the reduction of LAMal premiums, and finally by increasing the State's financial support for day care facilities for small children. Information on all RIE III topics can be found on the intranet.

We thank you for your cooperation and remain at your entire disposal for any further questions you may have.
