Tax agreeements

Double taxation agreements (DTAs) prevent double taxation, remove obstacles for cross-border economic transactions and govern exchange of information upon request  in tax matters. Tax information exchange agreements (TIEAs) deal solely with the exchange of information upon request.

Mutual agreement procedure

If double taxation arises with a state with which Switzerland has concluded a DTA, the taxpayer resident in Switzerland can initiate a mutual agreement procedure with SIF.

Financial dialogues

Financial dialogues serve to forge close contacts with the authorities of important partner states which are involved in financial matters.
