All companies with a turnover of more than CHF 100’000 are liable to VAT. We will take care of the VAT registration for your firm.
People who are commercially or professionally self-employed are generally subject to VAT. Those who do not reach an annual turnover of CHF 100,000 in inland sales are exempt from paying VAT. Depending on the situation, for example when large initial investments are made or in export heavy industries, it can make sense to pay the VAT on voluntary bases.
Following tax rates apply for Switzerland:
7.7 % Standard rate
3.7 % Hotel industry
2.5 % Reduced rate (food, books, drugs, ...)
We are happy to advise you regarding your questions on VAT.
