According to the will of the National Council, the federal government should receive half of the additional income from the implementation of the OECD minimum tax for internationally active corporations. The grand chamber approved a corresponding application on Thursday. In principle, the National Council approved a proposal from its Commission for Economic Affairs and Taxes.

The Finance Committee of the National Council was also behind the split. However, the Economic Commission added a clarification in the preliminary consultation: According to this, a canton’s share of the supplementary tax should not have exceeded an upper limit of 400 francs per inhabitant. However, the Council deleted this provision.
