Our services

Accounting Specialists

In Switzerland, registering as a public or private limited company requires bookkeeping services, and audit requirements depend on thresholds achieved over a two-year period.

There are two acceptable accounting standards – Swiss GAAP FER and IFRS. While listed companies usually use IFRS, local businesses and investors mainly use Swiss GAAP FER, as the standards are relatively easy to understand, have a modular structure, and vary with business activities and size.

We help global corporations and fund managers with all their corporate accounting requirements, using our bespoke, market-leading technology platform, MySPV.

Our accounting experts in Switzerland can help manage:

  • Accounting and bookkeeping
  • Management accounting
  • Statutory accounting
  • Official Books and Annual Accounts
  • Cash management (including payments)
  • Reporting
  • Consolidation of finanical statements
  • Bank account tracking
  • Treasury and cash flow forecasts
  • Audit assistance

Tax Specialists

While Swiss taxes are set at federal, cantonal (regional), and municipal levels, competitiveness among cantons to attract business means that cantonal rates are low. While Switzerland’s federal corporation tax is set at 8.5%, this regional competitiveness means the total maximum rate for all federal, cantonal and municipal taxes is between 11.9–21.6%.

The Swiss government also reduces the amount of corporation tax owed based on the number of shares it owns. So, foreign companies holding +10% of other firms can get a significant tax break.

It’s these relatively low taxes and strict traditional privacy laws that have encouraged Switzerland’s tax haven status – though these privacy laws have weakened since Switzerland signed the FATCA agreement.

We’re experts in international taxation and can help you to comply with the local tax requirements in Switzerland, using our purpose-built automation technology.

  • Tax compliance – covering multinational, federal, state, and municipal taxes
  • Official Books and Annual Accounts
  • Assistance with tax inspections and audits
  • Tax reviews and claims

Payroll Specialists

Switzerland’s labour laws are defined as ‘light-touch’ and liberal, with the work week being a maximum 45 hours. Overtime is limited to two hours per day and is paid at +25% of the standard hourly rate.

While rates and requirements vary between Switzerland’s 26 cantons (including public holidays, minimum pay / conditions, and maternity benefits), industry-level collective agreements are in place for around half the workforce – and these are legally binding on all employers in that industry, signatory or not.

Our experienced and knowledgeable team of payroll specialists in Switzerland will use our unique payroll technology platform to manage your payroll function. You’ll have permissions control for reviews and approvals, automated processes, and data that can be easily consolidated across your global business.
