The Numbers are impressive and clearly. Between 2009 and 2017, the "Greater Zurich Area" (GZA), the promotion of the location of the cantons of Zurich, Glarus, Grisons, Schaffhausen, Solothurn, Schwyz, Uri and Zug, and has settled every year between 90 and 100 companies in the Region. Only a year falls out of the frame. In 2014, only 71 settlements.
The reason for the Dent is on the Hand: 9. In February of that year, the voting citizens said with 50.3 per cent ' Yes ' to the mass immigration initiative. "The has made clear that settlements were more difficult," says Reto Sidler, media spokesman for the GZA. "Unclear circumstances from the horrors of the company." As the political debate became apparent that the Initiative has, however, not so drastic consequences came rapidly and more companies. In 2015, 93, of 2016, there were already 105.
55 million in tax revenue
The Figures come from a report by the consulting company Ernst & Young, the JCO published today. Ernst & Young has examined the success of the GZA for the years 2009 to 2017. According to the report, the site promotion is working, "substantially and sustainably". Since 2009, JCO has settled 835 companies here, and thus 7423 full-time created. Although each resettlement is not successful, but nine out of ten companies remain, according to the report over a longer period of time here.
The growth pays off in the Form of tax revenue. Ernst & Young, the annual estimated revenue "be careful" to approximately 55 million Swiss francs, and this at a cost of about 6.5 million Swiss francs per year for the support of the location. Not shown are the positive effects outside of the actual company were attributed to, for example, in the Form of contracts for local suppliers.
From Switzerland to Europe
but What makes the Region so successful? According to the press spokesman Reto Sidler three factors are crucial. The most important is the availability of skilled workers and young talents, and, here, Zurich is, apart from the political restrictions, well on the way: "thanks to the high quality of life and of the good wages it is international firms that are not difficult for skilled workers to come here to retrieve."
Central, as unrestricted access to Europe, so Sidler was secondly: "Many companies are not primarily interested in the Swiss market, but in the European." The Figures in the report, Four out of five companies are to operate according to its own information, international. Almost 60 percent are even beyond Europe.
A more important role in the stability of Switzerland plays. Conversely, the more unclear the future legal regulations are, the more likely the firms decide for other locations. The tax burden is, according to Sidler, only a subordinate criterion: "There are now many tax-favorable locations, which could not prevail nevertheless. The companies want to plan your costs in the long term and an attractive environment can offer." (Tages-Anzeiger)
