Tax Agreement Germany - Switzerland

This tool and the respective software was developped by the German Tax & Legal Center of KPMG AG. This document is based on our interpretation (as of 6 October 2011) of the agreement between Switzerland and Germany on cooperation in the area of taxation (Tax agreement Germany - Switzerland). The calculations are based on the status of the agreement as of 21 September 2011.

According to the most favoured nation clause included in the amended UK Tax Agreement, the UK may request that the higher level of taxation under the German Agreement shall also apply under the UK Tax Agreement. The UK made use of this clause.

KPMG AG makes this tool available free of charge for a first analysis of the possible tax burden (in percent). KPMG AG does note guarantee for the accuracy and completeness of the figures, information, calculation and the formula used for the calculation. KPMG AG is not liable for any mistakes or misapprehensions of the interpretation or application.

For past dates, the currency conversion is made based on the respective exchange rates published by SIX Telekurs. For the currency conversion in the years 2011 and 2012, an exchange rate of CHF 1.2 : EUR 1 was assumed. This assumed exchange rate may significantly differ from the applicable exchange rates for these future dates.

The mentioned figures and amounts in percent have only informative character and shall not replace or substitute any advice by a professional tax advisor. Individual advice is required in each and every individual case. KPMG’s German Tax & Legal Center in Zurich would be pleased to assist you (telephone 0041 44 249 32 58).
