International tax law

Right now, the only constant in international tax law is change. Despite efforts by numerous states to press ahead on global harmonization of national tax laws, many loopholes and inconsistencies remain in practice. Switzerland is not immune to these developments - or their far-reaching consequences.

Multinationals in Switzerland are faced with the challenge of assessing their current situation while developments at the national and supranational level are happening all around them. They need to adapt - in good time - to new Swiss and international tax laws, which may involve setting up new globally accepted structures.
