Automatic exchange of information AEOI/ Contracting States of Switzerland

Cross-border tax evasion should be prevented with the help of the new global standard for the automatic exchange of information (AEOI). The standard makes provision for the mutual exchange of information on financial accounts between states that have agreed to the AEOI. Aside from Switzerland, almost 100 states, including all major financial centres, have declared their intention to adopt the standard.  

Switzerland will start collecting data on 1 January 2017 and exchange it for the first time in 2018. The Federal Assembly approved the statutory basis back in December 2015.

To date, Switzerland has agreed to the AEOI with the following partner states: Link to list of partner states

esisuisse

Are my deposits protected under the deposit insurance esisuisse? Yes, like any bank and any securities firm in Switzerland, Bank von Roll Ltd. 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.
