Experienced Zurich Tax Attorney

A tax is a charge by the government on the income of an individual or a corporation, as well as the value of an estate or gift. The objective in assessing tax is to generate revenue to be used for the needs of the public. A tax is not a voluntary payment but an enforced contribution exacted pursuant to legislative authority.

Switzerland has a complex tax system. The original taxing powers lie with the cantons. This cantonal tax autonomy leads to intense tax competition between the cantons for companies and individuals. Even within a canton there is a tax competition between the communities, because communities have within certain limits the competence to determine their tax rates. The Confederation may levy taxes only where this is permitted under the constitution. Direct federal tax, value added tax, withholding tax and stamp duty generate a substantial part of tax revenues for the Confederation

An experienced Switzerland tax lawyer is knowledgeable in understanding the details, facts, complications, and circumstances that arise in tax cases.
