The wealthy and Switzerland

Tax planning services for high-net-worth individuals, Professional Athletes, Sportsmen, Show Business Personalities, Music Artists, Movie Actors and Actresses, Entertainment Business VIP's and foreign-born, wealthy residents (US residents excluded-service not available) prefer to live in Switzerland. The Swiss way of life also plays a part. Above all, benefit from «tailor-made» tax arrangements or a lump-sum taxation regime that effectively caps the income and net wealth tax.

The many attractive features of Switzerland mean that successful, financially independent individuals like Entrepreneurs, Professional Athletes, Sportsmen, Celebrities from Show Business and the Entertainment World can establish a new home in one of the most desirable locations in the world, and save their own money by doing it. Businesses can also benefit from relocating, and set themselves up in one of the most advantageous and business-friendly climates in the world. The move to Switzerland is not right for everybody, but it is probably more practical than you think. Details are highly personal and individualized, so it is best to discuss your situation with a firm specializing in relocation and tax law.

Taxation Models

Tax-Advantaged Residence, Lump-Sum Taxation and the establishment of Pre-Immigration Trusts in Switzerland featuring lump-sum taxation is another unique and advantageous option for foreign-born individuals (US residents excluded-service not available) relocating to Switzerland, and is particularly interesting for EU citizens. Lump-sum is only an option for foreign citizens who will not be economically active in Switzerland, so it is well-suited for retirees, or for those whose business is outside of Switzerland.

In a lump-sum taxation arrangement, an annual payment can be negotiated with the government based on your standard of living in Switzerland, rather than on the usual income-and-assets model. This allows for considerable financial privacy if you desire it, because it does not require disclosure of income or assets, and can also mean enormous annual savings, particularly for citizens of certain EU countries. Certain other countries (for example Germany and the United States) levy significant exit taxes on individuals who wish to relocate (whether to Switzerland or elsewhere), but the savings involved in a lump-sum or other Swiss tax ruling can easily make the move worthwhile. There are a number of good reasons to consider relocating to Switzerland.

You will benefit from Flat-Tax Arrangements available for qualifying foreign-born individuals (US residents excluded-service not available) in a country with a highly desirable political, social and economic stability. Switzerland enjoys a low crime rate. Infrastructures and excellent banking facilities are second-to-none. Enjoy an attractive lifestyle in a healthy environment and take advantage of efficient and reliable public services.

No Inheritance Tax in certain Cantons No Capital-gains Tax in Switzerland

Several cantons, have no inheritance tax – thus wealthy citizens are free to pass their assets on to their family. There are no capital gains taxes in Switzerland for individuals.

Property Tax

Annual property taxes are usually between 0.8% and 1.5% of a property’s value. Service charges can add another 1-2%. The total varies from canton to canton and commune to commune. For example, taxes and charges for an apartment in Verbier (Valais canton) are approximately $5.10 per square foot including utilities (water, electricity), insurance, communal charges (heating, service, administration, etc.), and local property taxes. In Villars, canton Vaud, taxes are around $6.20 per square foot. In the lake towns of Montreux and Vevey, taxes are slightly higher. However, even with service charges, annual expenses shouldn’t amount to more than 2.5% of the property’s value.

    Note: Despite the fact that Switzerland is not an offshore banking place, some foreign governments may have opposing views. To the contrary, Switzerland is an important financial hub. In addition, they may have other criterions constituting tax fraud, in contrast to the Swiss laws on tax evasion vs. tax fraud. We categorically state that Switzerland does not levy capital-gains taxes or any other form of tax on holders of non-Swiss Franc denominated Swiss bank accounts, bar none. We are distinctly referring to taxes levied in Switzerland under the Swiss tax code applicable to non-US securities. If you are not sure how your government is treating the Swiss tax rulings, we advise you to check your local fiscal laws or with your country's tax authorities to see if you are liable for taxes in your country on Swiss bank accounts or other assets held in Switzerland. Check to see if your country/citizenship is black-listed by Swiss banks.

    What is tax evasion and what are the implications, consequences, what are the general rules? Unlike in other tax jurisdictions, Swiss wage earners are not subjected to a withholding tax, so-to-speak a source tax, against their paychecks. Swiss tax payers file their tax returns at the end of every calendar year usually by April 15 of the following calendar year together with a salary and expense reimbursement certificate issued by their employer. In Switzerland we refer to this method as the tax reporting honor system. Albeit, it can happen that certain other  incomes the tax payer has earned may slip through the crack. It may be an oversight for not having reported such income or he may have simply forgotten to report it. When 'caught' by the tax authorities, a Swiss taxpayer must pay up the back taxes plus he has to pay a fine which maybe up to double the amount of back tax due. As you can see, there is no free ride either under tax evasion. The big difference is that Swiss tax authorities treat this as a petty issue and do not consider that the taxpayer has committed a felony. The failure to report or underestimate income or assets on a tax return is not considered a crime in Switzerland.
