Automatic exchange of information (AEOI)
New standards with regards to taxation have been adopted at the international level since 2016, in particular the automatic exchange of information (AEOI). The AEOI regulates the automatic transmission of information between the Tax administrations of the different participating states to support efforts to prevent tax evasion. Since the entry into force of the Federal Act on the International Automatic Exchange of Information in Tax Matters (AEOIA) on January 1, 2017, Switzerland has been reporting to the partner states with which it has concluded an agreement, a series of data concerning bank accounts held by clients with tax residence in one of these states. To this end, Banque Thaler is required to document the tax status of its clients and to report to the competent Tax administrations, where applicable, certain information on its clients and certain information relating to their financial accounts. The AEOI applies to both natural and legal persons.
In order to check with which countries Switzerland automatically exchanges information, you can consult the list of countries with which Switzerland has concluded an agreement at any time by clicking on the following link: Swiss Confederation : Automatic Exchange of Information
“Are my deposits protected under the deposit insurance esisuisse? Yes, like any bank and any securities firm in Switzerland, Banque Thaler is required to sign the Self-regulation “Agreement between esisuisse and its members”. This means clients’ deposits are protected up to a maximum of CHF 100,000 per client. Medium-term notes held in the name of the bearer at the issuing bank are also considered deposits. Depositor protection in Switzerland is provided by esisuisse, and the depositor protection system is explained in detail at www.esisuisse.ch/en
