The tax agreement for a relieving tax at source between Germany and Switzerland caused negative reactions in Germany. It must be ratified by the Bundesrat where the opposition parties are the majority. Discussions are currently ongoing between the German government and four Länder to define a list of amendments which should be submitted to Switzerland.

The German minister of finance has currently excluded a deep renegotiation of the agreement but mentions some details modifications. So far, Switzerland didn’t confirm it was ready to open new negotiations.

Both countries still need to deal with the EU authorities which are not in favour of those agreements.

The following weeks will be crucial for the success of the agreement.
