Updates Legal & Tax

Swiss corporate tax reform approved; entering into force as of January 1, 2020

Following the referendum, the voters in Switzerland approved in a public vote held on May 19, 2019, the changes of the law for the corporate taxation and the financing of the old age pension fund (STAF). Special taxation regimes will be abolished and new tax relief measures introduced on cantonal and communal level.

After the SPA: Stumbling blocks under FATF – Loss of right to dividends if notifications are omitted, also in M&A transactions

In view of the draconian sanctions currently in force under company law (and possibly soon to come into force under criminal law), it is advisable for everyone to check carefully whether they trigger reporting obligations under company law when acquiring shares. On 20 March 2019, the Swiss National Council waved through the envisaged changes in criminal law; now it is the Council of States‘ turn.
