Services

Tax laws are complex and interdependent and as a consequence the advisory services that we can provide you with are not capable of being commoditised. However, we are happy to offer you a free initial consultation to discuss your situation and requirements.

Examples of what we can assist you with:

Tax return preparation

  • Preparation of Swiss Federal and Cantonal/Municipal tax returns
  • Review of related tax assessments and writing of necessary appeals
  • Preparation of extension requests
  • Clearing questions in regard to international and intercantonal tax allocation
  • Filing claims for correction of withholding tax (e.g. for cross-border commuters)
Please note that we do NOT prepare U.S. tax returns.
If you wish we can coordinate the preparation of your U.S. tax return by a specialized U.S. tax consultant who is located in Switzerland. // We can then arrange the document transfer to the U.S. tax preparer and he will be able to prepare your U.S. tax filings from the Swiss documents and you will only have to provide him a minimal amount of additional documents. Contact us for more info.
