Tax Proposal 17 (TP17)

Corporate Tax Reform, Planning Opportunities, Chances & Risks

Your goals

After the failure of the Swiss Corporate Tax Reform III (CTR3 / USR3) in February 2017, Switzerland launches a new effort to reform the corporate tax System under the title Tax Proposal 17 (TP17). Such Reform can have a significant impact on the tax burden of Swiss-based enterprises and permanent establishments. In addition, the factors on which Switzerland’s business attractiveness and competitiveness are based will change; tried and tested business models will need to be overhauled from a tax standpoint. It is expected that the new corporate tax law will not be enacted before 2020. However, the need for action exists today.

MME Integrated Approach

TP17 creates the need for action among enterprises both in Switzerland and abroad. It may raise commercial and employment law questions and cause amendments to existing legal frameworks. In addition, TP17 and international developments such as BEPS and the EU Action Plan provide cause to reconsider a group’s corporate governance.
