Swiss Tax Data

Refinitiv has been approved to provide a solution to support financial institutions in meeting their Swiss stamp tax obligations.  

Overview

Creating more choice for the financial community in Switzerland 

The Swiss Federal Tax Administration (SFTA) claims a financial transaction tax for any domestic and non-domestic security within the scope of debenture, equity, funds and structured products. Relevant securities face a transaction tax shared between the buyer and seller depending on the nature and jurisdiction of the instrument. 

The Swiss requirements to provide data that helps firms meet their regulatory transaction tax requirements are the strictest in Europe. All data providers must be officially certified by the Swiss Federal Tax Administration and provide a full concept of understanding and implementation of the Swiss stamp tax law.
