Switzerland publishes recommendations for new corporate tax proposal 17

After rejection by popular vote of the Swiss corporate tax reform III (CTR III) package in February 2017, a Swiss governmental working group comprised of federal and cantonal members (the steering body) has been working on a revised package (tax proposal 17).

The steering body on June 1, 2017, published its recommended contents for tax proposal 17. The Federal Council now will consider the draft proposal and is expected to publish a final proposal for consultation by end of June 2017. Thereafter, parlamentary discussions are expected to start in spring 2018 and entry into force is expected to take effect January 1, 2020.
