Taxes & incentives
Moderate tax rates meet smooth cooperation
The Greater Zurich Area provides attractive corporate and individual taxation compared to the rest of Europe. Thanks to the country’s high volume of tax autonomy, the combined effective corporate tax rates (federal, cantonal and municipal) in Switzerland range from 12% to 24%. This wide range is due to the fact that there is a lot of tax autonomy on the regional and local level. Individual taxation in Switzerland is also very moderate. Unlike corporate tax, there is a progression which makes it impossible to indicate a steady rate. However in the Swiss cantons, progression is much flatter than in any other European country, and middle-class incomes are typically taxed at one third or half of the European rates.
