Relocation to Switzerland and lump-sum Taxation
Switzerland has one of the highest living standards of the world, located in the centre of Europe, high personal security, political stability, a strong respect of privacy and reasonable taxation. Many stars and sportsmen live in Switzerland but you do not have to be a celebrity to take advantage from our services.
In Switzerland it is possible to pay a fixed and flat fee amount of taxes pre-negotiated by our law firm.
The amount of taxes is calculated once a year according to the total amount of annual costs and living expenses. In order to facilitate the calculation, the annual rent of your house will be multiplied per six. This specific figure corresponds to the amount of your taxable yearly income. Based on it, it results a taxable income. The taxable income is the basis for the calculation of your effective annual tax rates.
The tax rate depends on the place where you are going to relocate. There are big differences in taxation between cantons and municipalities.
Supported by our Swiss network we are in a position to assist you in the appropriate selection of the most tax-efficient locations.
The taxation has no impact to your real income or wealth.
The lump-sum taxation is subject to different conditions according to the place to relocate. Due to the sophisticated legislations in different cantons and municipalities it is in your benefit to take legal advice to be professionally supported in the right selection oft the right place to live.
The lump-sum taxation with relocation is considered a famous speciality and unique opportunity given by the Swiss tax regime. It is comparable with the “resident - not domiciled” status according to UK tax laws.
Many celebrities have taken advantage from the lump-sum taxation like Tina Turner, Michael Schuhmacher, Isabelle Adjani, Charles Aznavoure, Boris Becker, Hermann Hesse, Nastassja Kinski, Rita Pavone, Sophia Loren, Peter Ustinov, Roussel Onassis, Jacques Villeneuve and many others.
