Switzerland electronic VAT filing

Switzerland’s Federal Tax Authority has launched this month an online VAT filing portal for VAT registered domestic and non-resident VAT businesses. The new online facility is known as ESTV SuisseTax.

To file online, tax payers of their tax agents / fiscal representatives need to be registered first. Registration may be in French, German, Italian or English.  Swiss VAT returns are on a quarterly basis.

The option to file paper returns remains.
