Liechtenstein minimum tax

All legal entities are subject to an annual corporate minimum tax of 1,800 Swiss francs (CHF) for tax years starting 1 January 2017. This tax can be fully credited to the profit tax.

The full tax amount is due even if the corporation is not resident in Liechtenstein for the whole tax period.

Under a lone exception, minimum tax is not due if the total assets of an operating entity did not exceed CHF 500,000 during the last three years.
