The Swiss electorate will vote on the change in stamp duties. The question is whether the issue tax on equity should be abolished. Around 2000 companies are affected by this tax every year, the majority of which are SMEs. Innovative start-ups that rely on their own funds for their growth are also highly affected. The currently applicable emissions tax thus prevents economic growth, innovation and the creation of jobs in Switzerland. The Federal Council and Parliament therefore propose the abolition of this tax. A referendum was called against the proposal.

Speakers will discuss the importance of the reform from the point of view of the Speak of the financial center. Afterwards, supporters and opponents will discuss the submission controversially, including questions from the audience.
