Re: Short term capital gains taxes in switzerland

Everything Mullhollander has said is correct. Just to add a little:

These 5 items are at the discretion of the person who is evaluating your tax return after you submit it. If their decision goes ' against' you, then you can appeal. The directives might seem a bit woolly/imprecise, but that is really for YOUR benefit, as it allows some discretion for the taxman in their evaluation.

If the 'Business Activity' is triggered, not only is income tax liable but you are also liable for AHV/AVS etc. (state pension i.e. P1 at least, not sure about P2 ) contributions as well.
