Swiss VAT rate cut 2018

Wed 1st Mar 2017

The temporary 8% Swiss VAT rate may be returned to the pre-2011 rate of 7.7%.

The current, higher rate was voted on in a public referendum to fund certain public expenditure on the railway network.  But this rise is due to expire at the end of 2017.  The Swiss Parliament will consider a further extension over the next few days.

The current reduced VAT rates would also drop from 3.8% to 3.7%.  There would be no change to the super reduced rate of 2.5%.
