Automatic exchange of information
The Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) is a new worldwide regulation aimed at combating tax evasion and fraud and includes a procedure that regulates the exchange of client and financial data between the tax authorities of the participating states. The Swiss AEOI Act entered into force on 01.01.2017.
The AEOI obliges Swiss financial institutions to establish the tax domicile of their clients. If a client has its main tax domicile in a country with which Switzerland has agreed and put into force the AEOI, ZugerKB is obliged to forward information on the affected clients and the reportable accounts to the Federal Tax Administration at the end of each year, which forwards the information to the competent foreign tax authority.
Switzerland has already signed an agreement with several states to introduce the AEOI. These states are listed in the following link of the State Secretariat for International Financial Matters (SIF):
