Taxes

The tax burden is a decisive argument for or against a new location. The canton of Glarus is attractive from a tax point of view compared to other cantons for both natural and legal persons, as a recent study by BAK Basel Economics shows.

  • Natural persons: the federal government, the canton and the township tax income; canton and township also levy a property tax and the church a church tax. The canton of Glarus taxes income at a maximum of 17 percent and property at three-tenths of a percent (simple tax).
  • Legal persons: the federal government, the canton and the township tax earnings; the canton and township also levy a capital tax and the church a church tax. The canton of Glarus taxes earnings at 9 percent and equity capital at two-tenths of a percent (simple tax).
