Stamp duty

The Swiss Federal Tax Administration charges a tax known as stamp duty in Switzerland.

Stamp duty is levied as a transaction tax on purchases and sales of investment instruments such as equities, bonds, structured products, investment funds, ETFs and other securities. It is deducted directly by your bank or broker. The amount depends on which exchange the investment instrument is traded on:

Stamp duty on domestic securities: 0.075%

Stamp duty on foreign securities: 0.15%
