After a test phase with four cantons (see my earlier blog) the FTA is now launching electronic reporting for all taxpayers. Officially it is to start on 1 September. According to information from the FTA, registration is, however, already possible over the following link.
The “FTA SuisseTax – Elektronische Mehrwertsteuerabrechnung”(FTA SuisseTax – Electronic VAT reporting) provides the taxpayer with the following functions:
- Electronic submission of the VAT reports and correcting reports
- Electronic submission of the annual turnover reconciliation
- Electronic deadline extension
- Overview of the transaction with the reports still pending and those completed submitted over the portal
Electronic reporting will certainly simplify performance of the declaration duties. If in addition your system can link with the FTA’s electronic reporting in such a way that manual transfers of the data are unnecessary, the sources of error and also the risk will be reduced.
We should be pleased to support you with electronic reporting.
