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 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 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 with the appropriate form.

Get a Valor Number or ISIN Identifier From SIX
SIX is the official securities numbering agency in Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Belgium, and in this capacity is responsible for the issuance of Valor and ISIN identifiers.
The Valor uniquely identifies financial instruments of any country and any asset class. The Valor is incorporated in the Swiss, Belgium and Liechtenstein ISIN. A Valor can be used in conjunction with an ISO Market Identifier Code (ISO 10383) and an ISO Currency Code (ISO 4217) to uniquely identify a financial instrument.
SIX is also a founding member of the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) and co-operator of the ANNA Service Bureau.

Report a Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Security
If a security has been lost, stolen or destroyed, it can be stopped at SIX. Securities reported for stopping include listed and unlisted Swiss securities, foreign securities if they are traded on the Swiss Stock Exchange and Euro bonds. The stopping does not mean that the instrument is blocked by authorities or is declared null and void. The stopping only means that the owner has reported a security missing and that legal proceedings might be taken to declare the security null and void or that a security might have been declared null and void in an official publication after legal proceedings.
A stopping announcement can help find missing instruments and, on the other hand, warns banks and their clients against acquiring such securities. SIX does not accept responsibility for the correctness, accuracy or completeness of the information on a security, as it cannot verify its accuracy.
After SIX has received a stopping message, the instrument is added to the SIX data base and is available to clients via our distribution platforms and our display product.
Download the stopping announcement form and return it to SIX.
IBAN is the acronym for International Bank Account Number, a payment transactions standard in Switzerland and throughout Europe. The IBAN tool enables individual IBAN calculations of conventional bank account numbers from Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
