How much is capital gains tax?
For real estate in Switzerland, the rate of capital gains tax depends on how long you have owned the property and how much profit has been generated. The longer you own the property, the less CGT you pay. Typically, after 25 years there is no CGT. The tax rate is determined by the local canton and is based on the purchase and sale price, minus the cost of any renovations or changes that have been made to the property.
