Real Estate Gains Tax - It's Almost Always Worth the Wait

The real estate gains tax varies from canton to canton. However, the fact that the length of ownership has a significant influence on the resulting tax is consistent throughout Switzerland.

Tax Authorities Can also Prosecute the Buyer

In most cases the seller is responsible for paying the real estate gains tax. However, if the the seller does not pay, the tax authorities will demand the amount due from the owner of the property. Therefore, if the purchase took place before the tax was paid by the seller, the buyer (i.e. the new owner) is expected to pay the due amount.

Our tip: When buying property, a buyer should pay special attention to the payment of the property gains tax. A good way to do this is for the seller to deposit or secure the amount of tax owed in advance, or for the buyer to deduct the tax from the purchase price and transfer the amount themself afterwards.
