Switzerland is undoubtedly one of the most attractive countries in
the world to invest and live in. An ideal combination of political and economic stability, a clean and safe
environment and relatively low tax rates make it the ultimate target for foreigners.
Switzerland is also an attractive place of residence and investment with regard to inheritance tax. The
country has no Federal inheritance or gift taxes. Instead, the cantons levy inheritance and gift taxes in
their own competence.
Many cantons do not levy inheritance taxes on assets between spouses or between parents and children. The
cantons that do have inheritance tax, charge very low rates, compared to other countries.

Luxury real estate
The acquisition of real estate in Switzerland is restricted by law. As a rule, all foreigners, who wish to
acquire Swiss residential real estate, must obtain approval prior to their purchase. Such approval is
relatively difficult to obtain.
For foreigners, who hold a Swiss residence permit, it is however possible to purchase house or apartment
for their own personal use.
Likewise, foreign-controlled Swiss companies, which purchase real estate for use as their own offices or
production facilities, may do so without restrictions.
MB GROUP is ready to offer you (through our professional partners) luxury residential property
all over Switzerland, and, in particular, in canton Ticino, in the heart of the Alps, where you can enjoy
