Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

Hi all,

For anyone looking for a tax consultant to file your annual returns etc I cannot recommend Denise from a company called Colfina highly enough.

She speaks fantastic English, is very friendly and definitely knows her stuff.

Denise is based near Basel but we did all correspondence by phone and email which was a very smooth and stress free process.

It was through this site that I saw a couple of recommendations for them and decided to give them a shot. They are also very reasonably priced.

I think they have expertise to do tax returns from all Cantons. We are based in Zug ourselves and Denise was completely ofay with all the ins and outs of Zug tax system.

All the best

Re: Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

I personally don't know any tax advisors/consultants based specifically in Zurich but as I said, Colfina works throughout Switzerland and definitely have expertise working with Zurich based clients which is closer to Basel than Zug, where we are based.

Not sure why it makes a difference to you where the company is based? You can always give them a call to discuss your situation before committing to going with them.

All the best.

Re: Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

I used this company, they charge u per hour but they are very good
Last year I even got money back from provisional payment
It's good for someone who can't speak German
You just give the document that they ask and they will do everything

Re: Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

Did you find someone already? If not, happy to send you the details of the guy I use. He works for Suter&Blum Treuhand AG in Zurich, but if you email him personally, he will do your Tax return for a cheaper price. He lives near the city and I actually popped round to his house last month to discuss my taxes. If you are interested, let me know and I will provide his details.

Re: Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

Can someone recommend a tax consultant who specializes in estate law? Does not have to be English speaking. Thanks.

Re: Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

A friend of mine has a Treuhand: he has a fixed rate for tax declaration (I think) and specializes in American expats taxes. He is Swiss but stayed about 5 years in the US. He has perfect English. He lives in Adetswil (ZH) with his american wife.

Hi I am in the process of setting up in Zurich, business and family. Is it possible you could forward the details for me?

Regards

Re: Tax Consultant Recommendation - Basel, Zurich, Zug

I've used the following firm over the past years and have found them to be very competent and accommodating.

Christian Rufer
**********************************
ALPHA Finanzplanung AG

Grindelstrasse 6 - CH-8304 Wallisellen
Mobile +41 79 636 35 08
Tel. +41 44 877 72 72
Fax +41 44 877 72 73
christian.rufer@alphafp.ch

In several cases where I had questions relating to issues like estate taxes, gift tax and options for limitations and considerations in case of investing in property, Christian was very prompt to provided relevant information. Interestingly, he did not bill me for providing this information. My previous experience with trying to get the same information from law firms in Zurich is that the meter starts running as soon as you call them and you get a bill eventually.

Christian also speaks English but does not work on US taxes.

Hope this helps

I also use Haesler Treuhand (Emanuel Haesler). I've been with him for years; he's super reliable, great prices, fast, and very flexible.
