Practice Group Tax

Dieter Wirth, PricewaterhouseCoopers AG

Switzerland is a well-known and preferred location for financing activities as it offers favorable tax alternatives for different types of investments and investors. A strong and stable tax legislation combined with a unique relationship with the tax authorities also makes Switzerland a very attractive location from a tax perspective for the private equity industry.

The current worldwide tax scenario is facing a significant change, especially with the actions proposed by the OECD in the scope of the initiative to minimize the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) as well as the increasing need for a fairer tax environment. Such international developments have reflected in the Swiss tax system, which is in process of adapting. The impact of a changing environment will significantly impact and create challenges to the private equity industry.

The Practice Group Tax actively monitors all relevant tax developments relating to or affecting the private equity and capital market and is actively seeking to represent the interest of the industry. Together with outside experts it also acts as know-how provider to SECA members in relevant tax matters.
