Protocol of Amendment to the Double Taxation Agreement between Switzerland and the USA in force as of 20.09.2019

Almost 10 years after the Protocol of Amendment to the Double Taxation Agreement between Switzerland and the USA was signed by representatives of both countries, it entered into force on 20 September 2019.

The focus is in particular on changes concerning the exchange of information between the two countries. The revision removes the distinction between tax evasion and tax fraud. Requests for information concerning such matters may relate to facts as from 23 September 2009, the date of signature of the Protocol of Amendment.

The Protocol of Amendment also contains a mandatory arbitration clause and exempts dividends paid to individual pension funds from withholding tax from 1 January 2020.

Do you have any questions on how the changes will affect you in concrete terms? We will be happy to help you.

Insurance Providers Allowed to Conduct Undercover Observations Again

The political and legal back and forth regarding undercover observations conducted by insurance providers within the Social Insurance System lasted for almost three years. It all started with European Court of Human Rights’ judgment of 18 October 2016. In its judgment, the court held that there was no sufficient statutory basis for such observations in Switzerland. In the following, a referendum was held against the newly created provisions allowing the insurers to monitor claimants. The Swiss electorate voted on this amendment to the Federal Act on General Aspects of Social Security Law (ATSG) on 25 November 2018 and approved it. However, as three complaints in this matter were still pending before the Swiss Federal Supreme Court, the statutory basis for monitoring claimants has not yet entered into force. On 8 August 2019, the Federal Supreme Court has rejected these complaints. Therefore, the amendments to the ATSG, together with the implementing provisions of the Federal Council of 7 June 2019, will enter into force on 1 October 2019. As a result, the insurance providers will again have the right to conduct undercover observations in justified cases as of this date.
