EU Interest Taxation: Self-declaration investment funds
The present page is directed exclusively at providers of investment funds who wish to declare their products themselves for the purpose of classification in connection with EU interest taxation. This information is essential for paying agents to be able to settle investment fund transactions.
SIX Financial Information is a data provider recognized by the Swiss Federal Tax Administration. In this capacity it provides paying agents with information on the fiscal classification of the relevant financial instruments.
SIX Financial Information will not classify investment funds with regard to their taxation, unless the required key data is available from the fund managers or companies. The classification of these products is performed exclusively on the basis of the self-declaration by the respective provider or fund company.
Self-declarations must be submitted to SIX Financial Information with the appropriate form.
