The tax system of the Grisons is tailored to meet the requirements of the economy, includes attractive tax rates, a generous depreciation practice and offers export-oriented and innovative companies the possibility of tax relief for cantonal and federal taxes.

The tax rate for regularly taxed companies is 14.73 % (in percent of net income before tax). The tax rate is 7.83 % (in percent of net income before tax) in case of a 100 % tax relief at cantonal level. The tax burden for private persons is also very moderate in national and international comparisons – the Grisons is among the leaders here.
