An economic commission motion has been submitted instructing the Federal Council to draw up a concept for the equal treatment of OECD and developing countries. The G assumed an incontestable role.

All documents from the preparatory phase, together with the declaration and the final document can be consulted at: The OECD standard for the exchange of information is not enforceable under international law.
Various studies in recent years have shown how the offshore centres foster corruption, capital and tax flight. According to the latest estimates, between USD and 1, billion of illicit flows are leaving the developing countries Global Financial Integrity Contrary to expectations, criminal dealings or bribery and corruption payments do not account for the greater part of these illicit flows.
Two-thirds derive from commercial transactions. Particularly targeted is internal transfer pricing by multinational group concerns.
By under-invoicing or over-invoicing, book profits and losses can be shunted around virtually at will. This is linked with tax evasion on a grand scale.
Four specialised non-governmental organisations demanded six immediate and trenchant measures by letter to the G Global Witness et al. The G should prepare for the transition to the automatic exchange of information. The rules on the identification of bank clients must be tightened up.
Tax evasion should be declared a preliminary to money laundering. The G should show ways of combating abusive transfer pricing. The ownership structure, control and invoicing of offshore enterprises, trusts and foundations should be disclosed.
In particular, the multinational enterprises should be bound to detailed, public, country-by-country reporting on their subsidiaries and the associated turnovers, investments, profits, taxes paid as soon. It set up a special commission whose report on capital flight from the poor countries was published in June Commission on Capital Flight from Developing Countries The study proposes a more demanding development policy that will assure the developing countries sufficient tax income and root out corrupt practices that lead to flight of capital and taxes.
Each of these havens was examined according to 12 indicators, selected to provide information on the degree of transparency and the spheres of secrecy. In the wake of the financial crisis, the Swiss financial centre has come under heavy pressure from two sides and has had to make significant concessions. It announced that it would rapidly initiate negotiations for the revision of DTAs with States that wished this.
Three more have been negotiated but have not yet been signed. These agreements must now be ratified by parliament before they can come into force. It is striking that, with the exception of Mexico itself a member of OECD and Qatar, there are no developing countries on this list. Switzerland has contracted DTAs with only 42 developing countries. Another group of the agreements assures administrative aid only in the event of tax fraud.
There are no treaties at all for over developing countries. In these cases there are no contractual commitments with respect to tax evasion and tax fraud Alliance Sud Switzerland had already negotiated agreements with Bangladesh, Chile and Ghana before it switched to the OECD standard for exchange of information.
The federal councillors ratified these old-model agreements. Those with France and Turkey, also originally negotiated on the old model without exchange of information even for tax evasion, were, in contrast, referred back for reworking. An economic commission motion has been submitted instructing the Federal Council to draw up a concept for the equal treatment of OECD and developing countries.
At a media conference in the run-up to a conference of OECD ministers of finance in Berlin in June Alliance Sud a , together with partner organisations from Austria and Luxembourg, presented proposals for a new tax foreign policy that would benefit not only industrialised States but also developing countries. The three countries should contribute vigorously to drying out the tax havens. The OECD standard should also apply for developing countries. And finally, taxation of interest should be expanded, analogous to the agreement with the EU, to cover the developing countries.
The latter demand was not new; the aid and development policy organisations had already called for it in vain in previous years. The Federal Council had rejected such motions out of hand several times. The idea was left on the shelf and was not followed up. In contrast, various bank representatives launched the idea of a capital gains tax on foreign assets Swiss Banking Switzerland should levy a tax for interested countries on income from foreign assets held in Swiss banks.
This would equate to a further expansion of EU interest taxation as dividends and fund income would also be taxed.
This is aimed primarily at OECD member countries, not at developing countries. There were also initial defensive reactions from the capitals of individual European countries and in international press commentaries. Apparently the idea seems to be rated as an all too transparent manoeuvre by the Swiss banks in an attempt to save what can still be saved. Foreign States would profit from increased tax income from Switzerland but would not have any information on the names of the holders of the assets.
Such a capital gains tax contradicts the tendency to improved exchange of information. The EU wants data, not money. Alliance Sud. Discussion Paper. Media Conference. Joint Media Statement. Phuket, Thailand.
