The richest 1% pay far too much, it's time EVERYBODY paid their fair share & stopped scrounging expecting others to pay for them.
Haha
To make everyone happy establish a simple rule, stop the BS with the tax braces, one flat tax % for any income above the poverty line and no wealth tax. But yeah, the majority of the population need to support the lazy ones and let the rich become even richer.

Is that true for a foreign co?
Yes, provided the Canton makes use of that possibility. See for instance the St.Galler Steuerbuch.

The top 1% income in CH is around 160k CHF a year.
The top 1% in assets in CH is around 5.5M CHF.
It's a shame that Switzerland isn't included in the article below and it does mention PPP rather than a straight conversion, but I would guess it is higher than the UK. That doesn't line up with your top 1% number. Where did you get it from?
