Switzerland: Personal Taxation

Wealth Tax

Wealth tax is annual and is levied at the cantonal level. The basis of assessment is as follows:

  • Residents pay annual wealth tax on the value of all assets located in Switzerland;
  • Non-residents pay an annual wealth tax on assets derived from enterprises and real estate situate in Switzerland.

The tax payable varies between canton to canton. Individuals whose wealth is below a certain threshold are exempted from the tax. By way of an example, the annual wealth tax in canton Zurich is levied at rates of up to 0.3%.
