Outlook for the Swiss model

Corporate Tax Reform III has standardised the Swiss particularities of corporate forms (holding, domiciliary and mixed companies) in tax handling. The previous different taxation of companies with foreign turnover and no employees (domiciliary companies) has been changed, so that all companies are now taxed at the same rate of 3.5% for cantonal and communal taxes, in addition to the federal tax of 8%. In this way, the point of dispute with the EU was resolved by applying the same tax rate for all companies. Parent companies are able to claim the participation deduction for qualified participations (shareholding of more than 10%). Thus, the profit tax of the parent company is reduced by its share of the dividend income. This practice is internationally accepted.

 

The Canton of Zug will set the overall tax rate for all companies at the same level. Up to now this has been 16% for normal companies and 8% for mixed companies. The new tax rate is to be set at 12% so that the tax advantage in the canton of Zug is still extremely attractive.
