The Swiss tax system

Taxes in Switzerland are levied at three levels: Cantonal, Communal and federal. All cantons have their own tax laws and tax income, wealth, inheritances, capital and property gains, and other tax objects quite differently. Communes may either levy communal taxes at their own discretion or decide on supplements relative to the cantonal basis.

The Confederation taxes income, but not wealth, and its tax receipts largely come from VAT, customs and stamp duties.

In Switzerland, foreign businesses are liable of VAT obligations if they sell goods or provide services in the territory for which it is necessary to establish fiscal representation. In response to the Federal Act on Tax Reform, most cantons have cut their corporate income tax rate, ranging from a minimum of 12% to an average of 15%
