Swiss accountancy service recommendations?

Hi everyone.

I am in the process of forming a Swiss company (having run companies in other countries) and would like find a sensibly priced Swiss Chartered accountant who can assist me in an advisory role (as I have IT experts) to help me work out and setup up all the adaptations / localisations for my accounting and logistics (ERP) software to make sure it is compliant with Swiss GAAP, so I can then import product from one of the European countries and then deliver it to customers in Switzerland (taking account of import duty, Vat etc etc ).

One of my colleagues will be able to do the daily book keeping to capture all the transactional activity - I just wanted to find an accountant firm that can help us setup the basics like Chart of account, VAT and other reports required (and other local GAAP requirements).

Here's hoping someone can help me. I have tried the big 10 firms and they are all coming in at approx. CHF 300 + per hour which seems top whack!

Thanks.

The VAT should not be too difficult if your bookkeeper knows his job. 300CHF is not that high priced for this advise and you would not really need a lot of hours for it. Depends of course on your type of business (importing what?) and your Canton for the corporate tax.

You may want to report in IFRS?

I Would highly recommend Mr Marc Wey. He is really experienced and kind. He has his main job as a teacher in accounting at local school if I don't get wrong. He helps me on small business. He provides service for individuals/businesses. He has a really good offer with charge per hour. His email is marcwey@gmx.com

Hi


I could recommend Doris Graf, Graf Treuhand. We work with her since four years and she is excellent and very fair priced.

Does canton of incorporation matter? We have set up a small online marketing business in Schwyz, and are looking for an inexpensive and honest accountant and / or a payroll management company. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Why "inexpensive" ?

You get what you pay for, an expensive one may be able to save you far more in tax savings than he costs.........

You need a good one, and only you can determine that, cost is not everything !
