SWITZERLAND

Certain regions (cantons) of Switzerland offer foreigners the possibility to be taxed at a flat amount instead of calculating the actual income. The taxpayer can negotiate an agreement concerning the amount based upon the standard of living.

When analysing the benefits of such a solution, the possible interactions with tax treaties have to be considered.

Residence permits are granted by the local governments. Because of recently approved bilateral treaties with the European Union it will become easier for EU citizens to obtain a residence permit.

NEW!: On 1 June 2002, the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons between Switzerland and the European Union will finally enter into force along with the other six sectorial agreements (Bilateral Agreements I). The Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons will govern the immigration and residence of EU nationals in Switzerland. The free movement of persons will be introduced step by step.

The acquisition of real estate by foreigners is restricted.

Our cooperation office in Zurich will offer the necessary assistance on site.
