Norway or Switzerland are two marvellous countries, I very much admire, the most advanced countries in the world in fact with great qualities of life….I'll put it frankly - Britain has more influence in China than Norway or Switzerland, with all respect for the other countries.

Overview: Switzerland

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) legislation required Swiss banks to report accounts belonging to US taxpayers with more than US$50,000, but client data would only be exchanged once the US authorities had requested ‘administrative assistance.’ Most European Union countries had accepted another type of arrangement, in which information was exchanged automatically. Most Swiss representatives expected that this type of automatic exchange will eventually become the international standard. In fact, the Swiss Senate had already given its initial approval to the bill in June 2013. The vote was considered to be a formality and the FATCA bill would be implemented in stages starting in July 2014.
