Swiss Accounting

When discussing the creation of a successful company and achieving growth, every entrepreneur should have their mind focused on the accounting of the business. In Switzerland, smaller companies can choose between keeping the accounting based on the cash flows or based on the date of the invoices. This becomes an important consideration if you give your clients longer pay terms. When a new company is started, entrepreneurs often need to reduce their fixed costs as much as possible and facilitate the entries. Choosing a cash-flow based bookkeeping could help you to reduce the tax burden and concentrate on business growth.

At Uzunov Consulting, our objective is to find the easiest and most profitable way for you to run your business. We advise you on Swiss accounting rules, the deduction of expenses, invoicing and payroll procedures, etc.

To offer competitive accounting you also need reliable accounting software. Our team helps you to find the most suitable IT solution. We can assist you with the installation of the program, the initial settings and the follow-up. Uzunov Consulting is an official partner of one of the most used accounting softwares in Switzerland.

Company setup

Switzerland is the most innovative economy in the world. The country is also an extremely entrepreneur friendly place with very efficient administration and strict rules. There are several things to know before you create company in Switzerland.

First and foremost, you have to be sure that your idea is adapted to the market. Our work is to help you conduct insightful market research, build a solid business plan, find the most suitable name, protect it and arrange the initial objectives for the entity.

Secondly, you have to decide on:

  1. Where to locate your company?
  2. What structure to choose?

In Switzerland, each canton offers different tax advantages. The country also has four official languages, so this is an important step to think about when you decide on company domiciliation.

The next important point is the type of structure you would like to create. Would it be better to have a capital entity (SA, SARL etc.), a personal company, association or foundation? Each one of these propose different advantages. Our objective is to guide you through the entire process – from the creation of the entity up until the future financial, tax and accounting management.

  • Preparation of draft statutes and other corporate contracts

Tax Consulting

The Swiss direct tax system is based on three pillars – federal, cantonal and municipal taxes. While the first level is the same in the entire country, there can be significant differences between cantons and municipalities. This is the so called principle of tax competition that applies in the country.

If it is already clear for you where your business will be, then you should concentrate on other points.

VAT is one of them. The standard rate in Switzerland is 7.7%. The VAT subscription obligation starts at 100.000 CHF revenues in one tax year. If you however have less than this amount you can opt for this taxation. Certain businesses like education, medical services and others are VAT exempted. Others like food wholesale or hotel services could have a reduced rate of 2,5% or 3,8%. Contact us to know the exact VAT details about your business.

As mentioned previously, tax on revenue for individuals and tax on profits for companies could vary according to the location of your business. Uzunov Consulting helps you find the most suitable place for your company and we advise you on the tax deduction rules applied in each canton.
