Kanton Uri

Canton Uri

It's worthwhile to invest, work and live with us: Uri is small yet streamlined and is full of opportunities. Get a taste of our creative power, faith in the future, joie de vivre and team spirit.

The business location Uri offers a secure future. Here – in the home of national hero William Tell – prudent investors and innovative entrepreneurs alike find loyal, highly motivated employees and a business-friendly government. Uri has room for business ideas. For instance, the Werkmatt Uri grounds next to the Altdorf train station offers 120,000 m² of space available for purchase.

In terms of tax competition, Uri beats many other cantons: For several years, a flat-rate tax and the lowest dividend taxation in Switzerland have made Uri an attractive tax environment for individuals and corporate bodies. For more than five years, the Gotthard canton has also been moving towards first place in Switzerland in terms of disposable household income and the financial attractiveness of its residential offers.

Are you curious about Uri, which has been right beside the shortest route through the Alps since even before the opening of the Gotthard Base Tunnel? We look forward to getting in touch with you.
