Angelo Digeronimo, born in 1941, studied economics at the University of Berne where he graduated in 1967.
During his 38 years of activity at the Federal Tax Administration (FTA) he accumulated numerous functions in the field of direct taxes. Until 2006, he belonged to the advisory staff of the FTA’s directory board for all issues concerning corporate taxation and self-employed persons. He also had the leading role in the launch and political support of the two reforms of the Federal Income Tax with respect to corporate taxation and self-employed persons. In addition, he co-authored the first commentary on the Federal Income Tax.
From 1974 to 2008 he participated as the Swiss delegate in the discussions and drafting of all OECD reports on transfer pricing. He was also responsible for the mutual agreement procedures and, more recently, the advance pricing arrangements on transfer pricing.
Mr. Digeronimo has joined the tax team of Python & Peter as counsel.
