Swiss VAT fiscal representation: Certainty and flexibility for foreign businesses

29 December 2017
KENDRIS Author(s): 

Foreign businesses which are registered for VAT in Switzerland need to appoint fiscal representatives in Switzerland. KENDRIS as your partner can help you to stay compliant with the law.

Following changes to the VAT Act (revMWSTG), as at 1 January 2018 many foreign businesses will become liable to register for VAT. From this date onwards, it is no longer only the turnover realized in Switzerland which will be relevant, but global turnover. For foreign businesses, this means that if their global turnover exceeds CHF 100,000 (about EUR 85,000), they may be liable to register for VAT in Switzerland if they have a Swiss turnover of CHF 1 or more.

The Federal Tax Administration expects that there will be 30,000 more businesses liable to register for VAT from 1 January 2018 due to the partial revision of the VAT Act.
