Switzerland-registration reminder

Prior to 2017, businesses, both resident and non-resident in Switzerland, were required to register for Swiss VAT where revenue from taxable supplies made within Switzerland exceeded CHF 100,000 in a 12 month period.

However, following amendments to the Swiss VAT law, the registration threshold now applies to worldwide revenue earned by the business, rather than solely income from Swiss taxable supplies.

This change was effective from 1 January 2017, and means that businesses making supplies within Switzerland must now be very aware of their compliance obligations, as it is likely that these will arise much sooner than they may have previously.
