When and why do you need fiscal representation in Switzerland?

Since the reforms in Swiss VAT law, all foreign companies that provide taxable services in Switzerland and generate a worldwide turnover of more than CHF 100,000 per year are subject to VAT in Switzerland. Foreign companies whose worldwide annual turnover is less than CHF 100,000 are exempt from VAT.

Taxable supplies include, but are not limited to, the following activities:

Operating a warehouse in Switzerland

Provision of services under a contract for work and services

Carrying out work on objects such as assembly, installation, or maintenance of objects

Digital services, e.g. electronic provision of software or music

Other physical activities in Switzerland

Mail order business of goods to Switzerland at the standard tax rate, with a value of less than CHF 65 per order but more than CHF 100,000 in total per year.

Companies domiciled abroad that provide services in Switzerland which are exclusively subject to purchase tax, such as consultancy services or services in the field of advertising, are exempt from tax. Mail order business and the delivery of goods to Switzerland that are subject to import tax also don’t require a fiscal representative.

What are the benefits of a fiscal representative for your company?

A fiscal representative is essential to ensure that your business complies with the formal requirements of the Federal Tax Administration.

Switzerland does not allow non-resident businesses to directly register for VAT. Foreign companies that have neither a place of residence nor a place of business in Switzerland must therefore appoint a fiscal representative to fulfil their Swiss VAT obligations.
