Lump-sum taxation

A majority of Swiss cantons as well as the Swiss government itself support expenditure-based taxation, also known as lump-sum taxation. First and foremost, this is a decisive factor for wealthy non-nationals, who make up a relatively high percentage of the population in the canton of Grisons, for example. The tax savings are considerable compared to retaining a foreign domicile. Especially in times of economic uncertainty, this is an important safeguard for financially comfortable people in particular.
