Value Added Tax

Value added tax is an extremely complex topic. Qualifying value added tax correctly is not enough to avoid risks – correctly booking and documenting transactions is also essential. Only in this way can you take advantage of your opportunities over the long term. This is exactly where we offer added value for your individual needs.

We can advise you in the following matters:

  • Value added tax qualification of business transactions, incl. utilising opportunities and avoiding risks
  • Preparation of agreements
  • Implementation of special value added tax situations:
    • Accounting
    • Preparation of documentation and declarations
    • Turnover tax and input tax reconciliations

Proper booking and documentation is essential for consistent implementation of value added tax. We will provide you with concrete and practical support. Experience shows that the biggest source of errors lies in documentation, which not infrequently leads to misunderstandings between taxpayers and tax authorities.

In der 15. Auflage wurde das Herausgebergremium verkleinert und der Teil Steuern gekürzt. Ge­blie­ben sind die Einkommens- und Vermögenssteuern aller Kantone und des Bundes (Kapitel A.) sowie die Nachbesteuerung in Erbfällen (Kapitel C.). Daneben werden nur noch die Erbschafts- und Schenkungssteuern behandelt, in Kapital B. auf kantonaler Ebene, in Kapitel D. die Doppelbesteuerungsabkommen und im Kapitel E. in anderen Ländern (internationaler Teil). Der Teil Recht wurde ausgebaut und weist zwei wesentliche Neuerungen auf: Zum einen wird China als neues Land aufge­nom­men, welches 2020 ein neues Erbrecht erhielt, und zum an­dern wird neben den bisherigen Abschnitten über die gesetzliche Erbfolge (1.), Verfügungs­be­schrän­kungen, ins­be­sondere durch Pflichtteile (2.) und den Kollisionsregeln für internationale Nachl­ässe (3.) neu ein Ab­schnitt über die güterrechtliche Auseinandersetzung (4.) aufgenom­men. Aus den aktuellen Angaben zur Gesetzgebung, Literatur und Rechtsprechung der Schweiz, ist die Revision des schweizerischen Erbrechts (Kapitel F.) hervorzuheben, dessen erste Etappe (Reduktion der Pflichtteile) 2022 in Kraft treten dürfte. In der Revision des Inter­na­t­io­nalen Erbrechts (Art. 86-96 IPRG) wurde 2020 ein Entwurf des Bundesrates vorgelegt
