Details are highly personal and individualized, so it is best to discuss your situation with a firm specializing in relocation and tax law.
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.

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.
