Re: Buyer paying agent's fees - tax implications?

If you buy another property anywhere in Switzerland for the price you sell at, or higher, there is not capital gains tax to pay. Well, the work it all out, as that‘s what the tax off ice there for, then cancel it...
Ja aber...

I don't expect to purchase another property in Switzerland - this would be a last hurrah. I'll either leave feet first, or with a transatlantic ticket. So for me, CGT is something to factor into the equation.

And on the subject of CGT, we are looking for a Ferienhaus as a compromise to selling the primary house.

I thought I had read that CGT applies to Ferienhäuser in all cases, but can't seem to find that reference. (Last week's heat seems to have permanently melted my brain.) Can anyone confirm?
