Switzerland – file VAT returns electronically


PwC_R_Vinesh.Naidoo_Yoginee.Sharma_Vernie.Slabert_SouthAfrica_Jhb_P_CW_0017.JPGSwiss VAT Authorities informed that a pilot project to electronically file the VAT returns will start next year.

Beginning from Q04/2014 every taxpayer in the respective cantons of “zone 1” (Basel, Solothurn, Thurgau and Uri) has the possibility to file the VAT returns electronically.

The taxpayer will be notified about this new possibility together with the VAT return of the 4th quarter 2014.

During the testing phase every participant still has the chance to file the VAT returns by regular mail.
