Frequently asked questions

The property gain is the profit made from the sale of a property. This profit is the difference between the selling price and the capital costs (purchase price plus certain additional costs). Deductible expenses include purchase expenses (notary fees and property transfer taxes), value-added investments, and sales expenses. Taxation of property gains varies from canton to canton in Switzerland.

The property gains tax is calculated based on several factors, including the canton in which the property is located. The following approach can serve as a guideline: 

  • Determining the property gain: The property gain is calculated by subtracting the purchase price of the property (including purchase expenses and value-added investments) from the selling price. Sales expenses can also be deducted.
  • Application of deductions based on the ownership duration (if applicable): In some cantons, the property gains tax is reduced based on ownership duration. The longer you have owned a property, the lower the tax rate. 
  • Calculation of the tax based on canton’s tax rates: The taxable property gain is subject to the canton’s tax rate. The tax rate may be progressive or proportional. 

Applying cantonal rules (if applicable): Cantonal specifics will influence the property gains tax, such as tax deferral for replacement purchases.

Yes, there are cases where property gains tax can be deferred or waived. The most common case is a replacement purchase, where the proceeds from the sale of a property are used to buy a new property. Here's a general outline: 

  • Replacement Purchase: If you sell your property and immediately invest the proceeds in the purchase of another property, you can apply for a deferral of the property gains tax. The property gain won’t be taxed as long as the money remains invested in a property. 
  • Conditions: To qualify for a deferral, certain conditions, which vary by canton, must be met. Generally, the replacement purchase must be made within a specific time frame, and the new property must be located in Switzerland. Additionally, the new property has to cost at least as much as the old one.
  • Goal: The deferral of the property gains tax offers a tax incentive for private homeowners who want to stay homeowners. 
  • Effects: The property gains tax is deferred until the new property is sold. If the new property is held until the owner's death, depending on the canton, it may be possible to avoid the property gains tax altogether.  

It's important to note that regulations vary from canton to canton. Consulting a tax advisor to get detailed information on the regulations in your canton is recommended to optimise your property gains tax.

Sale condominium
We decided to work with Neho to sell a condominium. The first contact with Manuel Cacciola during the viewing of the property for sale completely convinced us.
Manuel Cacciola, with his in-depth specialist knowledge and his courteous manner, advised and supported us very competently and professionally throughout the entire sales process. He supported us at all times, including with special questions and subject-specific concerns.
The notary appointment, including everything that goes with this appointment, such as documents, certificates, promises of payment, etc., was also prepared and coordinated by Manuel Cacciola. Everything worked out perfectly, so we were able to sell the apartment within a short period of time.
We would like to thank Manuel Cacciola and his team very much - absolutely great job!!!
We can recommend Neho at any time.

Fun to able to watch the progress of ad and video minute by minute. Photographs and video were of exceptional quality. Despite being a web based system, people were always available on the phone for any queries. 6 viewings within 4 days, and 2 offers at the asking price in 10 days! Highly recommended.

We had an extremely smooth and high quality experience with Neho. The whole process, from start to finish, was made as simple as possible and our agent, Manuel, was responsive and kept us informed at every step. Thanks to the high-quality online documents, potential buyers knew exactly what they were walking into before any viewing, and we had an offer on our house within 10 days of it being advertised. I would highly recommend Neho, not only for value but also for service. In this case, you really get a lot more than you pay for ☺️
