Established in 2003, VAT plus offers foreign companies with business activities in Switzerland legal support in the field of indirect tax and related areas.
VAT plus assists foreign companies to guide along Swiss indirect tax+ rules that effect their business transactions that touch the Swiss jurisdiction.
The exclusive focus on foreign companies with business activities in Switzerland distincts VAT plus from other market players. Long year experience and an international background make that we are familiar with the issues with which foreign companies are faced when expanding their activities to other countries.
With the office located in Berne, we are close to all main authorities that are competent for indirect tax and related issues.
VAT plus’ primary specialisation is reflected by a variety of technical issues that are handled on a daily or regular basis. Typical companies that are assisted by VAT plus have their business establishment in other European countries, in North America and in the Asia Pacific region.
The competencies bars indicate the frequency with wihich these issues are dealt with.
Indirect tax compliance depends (also) on the business sector to which the respective foreign company belongs. This does not mean that we do not focus on individual clients. We always try to give individual clients the appropriate level of personal attention.
Our experiences show that awareness is a key factor for effective legal compliance. We aim at finding the right level of knowledge transfer for each client, in order to enable the client to develop a pro-active way of handling.
Our maxim is: preventing is better than solving. We also think that each client will keep the responsibility that it should keep. We verify from the background, and where needed we interfere or look for solutions. We think that client performance is decisive for star performance, and therefore we aim at guiding clients in the right direction.
