Value added tax

The International

Since 2018, global sales have been taken into account and the company must now also register for its Swiss sales.

Helmut has a degree in engineering and lives with his family near the headquarters in Berlin. He is the sole heir to an internationally active machine company that manufactures large printing machines in Germany and offers them in particular in other European countries. These are installed and maintained by specially trained technicians or appropriately instructed subcontractors. Great importance is attached to quality.

The company has been subject to VAT almost everywhere in other European countries for several years, which was previously not the case in Switzerland due to the turnover limit of CHF 100,000. Since the change in the law as of 1.1.2018, the worldwide turnover is taken into account and the company must now also register for its Swiss turnover.

Helmut is therefore looking for a corresponding partner in Switzerland. The complete value added tax consulting as well as fiscal representation should be taken over. He has not yet had any contact with Swiss VAT law and expects competent and comprehensive support.

And you?

  • Are you looking for a reliable partner in Switzerland?
  • Are the tasks related to VAT too complex and country-specific for you to be able to handle them yourself?
  • Do you also need competent and quick answers to short-notice inquiries?
