Due to Swiss laws, Switzerland is regarded as a tax haven which can be very beneficial to high net worth individuals looking to minimise their liabilities.
While Switzerland is geographically part of Europe, landlocked and bordered as it is by Germany, Italy, France and Austria, recent governmental announcements relating to the continuance of preferential tax treatment available in Switzerland just proves that Switzerland remains offshore from the EU and as such an attractive tax haven.
Both the Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey and senior Swiss diplomat Michael Ambuehl have stated that Switzerland will not give in to pressure from the European Union to change the cantonal system that allows different Swiss cantons to set their own tax rates with many offering attractive taxation incentives to draw international holding companies and high net worth individuals to relocate to Switzerland.
