Business Activities in Switzerland

Switzerland is – despite its limited land surface and lack of raw materials – an important industrial nation and centre for financial services. Today, Switzerland belongs to the most successful business locations in the world and offers a favourable investment environment. Characteristics of Switzerland’s labour market include liberal labour laws, a slight touch in regulation and a high level of social stability. In addition, by comparison with other European countries, taxes on corporate and personal income are low. Value-added taxes and customs duties are also low. Switzerland has signed bilateral double taxation agreements to avoid double taxation at the international level.
