29.11.2016 - The reduced taxation of holding, domiciliary and mixed companies should be abolished with the third series of corporate tax reforms. This reduced taxation is no longer in line with international standards. To prevent a loss of competitiveness for Switzerland, internationally accepted tax relief measures are to be introduced. In doing so, the focus will be on the promotion of innovations. The Confederation will also share the burden of the profit tax reductions envisaged by the cantons. It is thus planned to increase the cantons' share of direct federal tax from the current level of 17% to 21.2%.
A referendum will be held on the reform. Opponents expect high tax receipt shortfalls. They fear that the population will be required to pay for these shortfalls.
