The Swiss Bankers Association’s (SBA) position on the signing of the tax agreement between Switzerland and Germany

  • The SBA welcomes the signing of the tax agreement between Switzerland and Germany.
  • In its entirety, the agreement is balanced and fair.
  • The result is that German taxpayers are subject to full taxation on their income on assets in Switzerland in future. In return, their privacy remains protected.
  • The agreement is fair and allows both countries to put past bilateral problems behind them. Germany receives the taxes owed quickly and efficiently.
