You can deduct interest charged on your debt during the tax year from your taxable income, but you cannot deduct the debt itself.

Interest paid for personal loans, credit card debt and mortgages is tax deductible. Leasing costs are not.

Deductions are capped at a maximum of 50,000 Swiss francs plus capital gains.
