25.03.2013 - In Switzerland, financial privacy is protected by bank client confidentiality. Banks may not disclose any information on the financial affairs of clients to third parties. Bank client confidentiality can, however, be abused. It can be lifted where there are sufficient grounds for suspecting that a crime has been committed.
Switzerland is committed to fighting cross-border financial crime at the international level. In addition, Switzerland stated in March 2009 that it was willing to adapt its double taxation agreements to the OECD Model Convention with respect to international administrative assistance. In the case of well-founded requests, Switzerland no longer discloses data only in the case of tax fraud, but also in the case of tax evasion. However, Switzerland rejects the automatic exchange of information.
