Monthly VAT news

Information on tax matters is generally easy to come by, but that’s not so much the case when it comes to value-added tax, which is more of a niche area. This, despite the fact that it makes up the greatest proportion of Switzerland’s tax receipts. Find out in our new monthly blog, VAT’sNEW, what challenges are faced by business owners when it comes to indirect taxes.

The digital revolution is all-pervasive and VAT processing is also currently undergoing a period of profound change, both in Switzerland and abroad. Our VAT experts have particular expertise in this area, as questions regarding digitisation are a burning issue at the moment. Anyone who can't keep up with the frenetic pace of change will miss the boat for good. Furthermore, the revised Value-Added Tax Act will entail changes for many companies from 1 January 2018. We will address the key changes in a concise and comprehensible manner.
