Tax Representative in Switzerland

Swiss Financial Company & Trust SA represents you for tax purposes for your VAT returns in Switzerland.  As a tax representative, we are responsible, in respect to the tax authorities, for all procedures and formalities in relation with VAT. Thus, any international business will be in compliance with its obligations relating to its tax returns in Switzerland.

As a tax representative, we manage for your business all processing of correspondence, communications and requests for information from the Swiss tax authorities and customs. Your tax representative is the reference person for the whole of Switzerland and makes available work areas for any VAT inspection by the tax authorities relating to your tax return obligations.

Since 1 January 2018, all European and International businesses providing services in Switzerland, and generating turnover in Switzerland and internationally of at least CHF 100 000 (approximately USD 110 000) from services subject to VAT must register with the tax authorities in Switzerland. This is the worldwide turnover which, since the beginning of the year, determines liability for VAT.


Our tax representation services:

  • Tax representative for VAT tax returns
  • Periodical inspections of documents
  • Recovery of VAT in Switzerland
  • Establishing each year that the turnover and input tax correspond (turnover liable to tax in Switzerland)
  • Processing correspondence relating to VAT
  • Administrative management with customs for imports    

Tax Advisory Services

In addition to managing your company, we propose pertinent advice for optimising the taxation of your business and choosing the right strategy.

Moreover, we can also negotiate special tax statuses with the tax authorities for administrative companies, trading companies, holdings and foundations.

Our service also includes tailored, customised advice, VAT declarations in Switzerland and EU countries, the annual tax declaration of your company in Switzerland, and the recovery of withholding tax in Switzerland or internationally according to double taxation agreements.

An advantageous and stable tax environment

Une plateforme digitale efficiente

Switzerland, by the quality of its services and its discretion, has managed to become a world financial centre. This dependability is a strong point which makes Switzerland attractive for businesses.

Switzerland groups 26 cantons, each with its own tax system. Consequently,  taxation is not the same throughout the territory. It is important each time to consider federal, cantonal and communal taxation. However, in general the overall tax burden in Switzerland is relatively light compared to its direct neighbours, with, in addition, access to a financial and banking infrastructure and environment often envied elsewhere in the world.

The Swiss tax system offers numerous possibilities for optimisation.  Our fiduciary shows you how to benefit from these.

Indeed, each of your decisions will have tax consequences. It is therefore necessary to know the various consequences in order to anticipate and orientate your choices in tax matters.

We act on several profiles:

  • Tax advice for private individuals
  • Tax advice for businesses
  • International tax advice
  • Advice on VAT in Switzerland and the European Union
  • Advice on royalty management

It is therefore a question of using all the possibilities offered by the Swiss tax system for entrepreneurs and shareholders of Swiss companies: we previously analyse your entire tax situation and we present to you how your assets can be optimised, the various wealth-transmission solutions, the management of your pension capital, the possibilities for withdrawing it and the impact from the tax point of view.
