DUTY AND TAX RATE PERCENTAGE

Personal possessions and household goods which are accepted as being associated with removals are those that have been in use for greater than six months in your previous home and that will be used by you in Switzerland. This includes your car, and pets are also granted exemption. Newer goods will attract import duties even if brought into Switzerland as part of a relocation. For this reason it is helpful to have receipts to hand as proof of purchase dates should any items be queried. An inventory list should also be compiled although this can be quite general and can be made on ordinary paper, no forms required. Goods subject to import duties should be detailed at the end of this inventory, along with their respective values.

Special provisions have to be made via the Federal Veterinary Office (Bundesamt für Veterinärwesen) for household goods made from animal skins or ivory. The Federal Police Office (Bundesamtes für Polizei) must be contacted if weapons are among your possessions. The weapons regulations also apply to replica and toy weapons where they bear sufficient resemblance to genuine ones. Certain antique weapons are not regulated to the same extent but it is advisable to take advice from the Federal Police Office with regard to antiques and decommissioned weapons.
