Domicile Change

An increasing number of foreigners are relocating to Switzerland, primarily for financial reasons. But aspects such as safety and quality of life also make a Swiss residence or retirement home attractive for people from many different countries.

Switzerland is politically secure, financially stable and offers one of the highest qualities of life in the world. The unique landscape and excellent infrastructure are also amongst Switzerland’s well-known benefits. Switzerland also offers its citizens and residents the best framework for a high-quality lifestyle in cultural and ecological terms too.

We have already accompanied a large number of our clients through the process of relocating to Switzerland. An important part of our relocation services are tax rates, as these vary from canton to canton.

We are also familiar with the problem of exit taxation, for example, which has been levied in Germany for a number of years and can, depending on the respective German tax residence, be as high as 50%. This is also included in our consultancy services.

In Switzerland itself, extensive knowledge about local authorities which can be considered for a relocation is particularly advantageous. For example, depending on residence and asset situation, there are a variety of opportunities for newcomers in Switzerland to reach an agreement with authorities for more-reasonable taxation.
