If, as a foreign company, you generate sales in Switzerland, you may become liable for VAT. If this is the case, the Swiss legislator requires a fiscal representation in Switzerland. In this case, a representative established in Switzerland grants the domicile for the respective company.
A correct registration of the fiscal representation as well as the VAT is of great importance to avoid difficulties with the tax authorities. In addition, the entire registration process and the import of goods from abroad is significantly accelerated.
In order to be able to enjoy the above mentioned advantages, a fiscal representation is necessary, which we offer you with our trustees. You can rely on our comprehensive expertise and decide freely how extensive we may support you in this complex matter.
Our experienced specialists can support you in the following tasks:
Registration ZAZ Account (if desired)
Periodic document checks (recording is done by customers)
