Switzerland Approves Fiscal Tax Reforms by a Crushing Margin

Swiss voters approve corporate tax reforms that will remove preferential tax schemes for MNCs by a crushing margin of 66-34, two years after the same idea had been heavily rejected. This project will equalize tax schemes for all companies, in a step forward towards social justice according to proponents of the project. Switzerland therefore tries to realign itself with international standards, as promoted by the EU and OECD.
