Tax Reform and Financing of Old-Age and Survivors' Insurance

On the 19th of May 2019 a Federal Act on Tax Reform and Financing of Old-Age and Survivors' Insurance has passed the National Referendum. Therefore, tax privileges within cantons for undertakings which are predominantly internationally active shall be abolished. Such undertakings shall have to pay a full corporate income tax.

According to art. 20 par. 1bis and art. 18b par. 1 of the Federal Income Tax Act shareholders who hold at least 10% of a company's capital are obliged to pay tax on the income from equity investments as a federal income tax for 60% in the personal assets and for 50% in the business assets. In four cantons of Switzerland the taxation is even below 50%. The adoption of the above-mentioned Act entails that such a reduced taxation shall thereby amount to 70% in the Confederation and at least to 50% in cantons.

The profit out of a share sale is as a general rule tax-free. Under the new Act the tax exemption shall be repealed in case an individual or a legal entity sells shares to a company which is controlled by him/her or it.

If You have any questions concerning other ramifications of the newly adopted Federal Act on Tax Reform and Financing of Old-Age and Survivors' Insurance, do not hesitate to contact us!

JustOne Meeting in Cyprus

From the 3rd to the 5th of Mai 2019 the lawyers of the JustOne network met in Limassol, Cyprus. They discussed the various legal adjustments that have already been adopted with regard to Brexit. These current changes, although they are already having an impact, are often hardly noticed in addition to the media focus on the Brexit itself.

Deletion of unjustified entries in the debt collection register

Has anyone initiated an unjustified debt collection proceeding against you? And have you lodged a formal objection within the 10-day time limit? You would like clear the unjustified debt collection proceeding in your debt collection register. Since 1 January 2019, there is a new way to make unjustified entries in the debt collection register for third parties no longer visible. The debtor may submit an application after a three-month period from the date of delivery of the summons for payment in order to clear the entry in your debt collection register. Within a 20-day period, the creditor must provide proof that he has initiated a proceeding to remove the formal objection. If the creditor does not provide the proof, the application will be approved. If the proof is not provided subsequently or if the operation continues, the entry in the debt collection register can be viewed again by third parties.

We assist you with your request for the deletion of the entry for a flat rate of CHF 250.00 (application including procedural fee, plus VAT).
