Switzerland's double tax treaties 

In order to avoid double taxation of corporations and individuals generating income in two countries, Switzerland runs so-called Double Taxation Agreements (DTA). The treaties between Switzerland and the contracting countries help dismantle the barriers surrounding cross-border economic transactions. According to a decision by the Federal Council in 2009, the agreements should be based on the OECD Model Tax Convention on Income and on Capital.
