Tax legislation shows different characteristics in every country. In addition, the concept of tax includes value-added tax, consumption tax, income tax, customs duties, and all kinds of compulsory tax liabilities that must be paid to the government. Investors who have a company or branch in a foreign country need to be well-informed about the tax advantages of that country to provide them with self-financing. For example, in countries where import tax rates are low or tax payment obligations are linked to domestic sales instead of export transactions, investors actually avoid paying advance taxes for a certain period of time and reduce their investment transaction costs.
As an example Switzerland is a country with highly advanced tax laws, particularly in the realm of corporate taxation. Switzerland is divided into 26 cantons or states, each of which is financially autonomous. The cantons are accountable for their own budgets and have the authority to set their own tax rates. As a result of intense tax competition among the cantons, there are significant differences in tax rates between them.
Taxation based on expenses is a simple and advantageous form of taxation for individuals who meet certain conditions in Switzerland.
Those who are not Swiss citizens and establish tax liability for the first time in Switzerland may opt to be taxed based on their expenses. In Switzerland, there is no capital gains tax for privately held stocks or other securities.

In Germany, tax-related disagreements are handled by tax courts that are part of the legal systems of the federal states and can be found throughout the country. These disputes may involve various issues, such as tax deductions or tax returns by taxpayers.
