Looking for tax accountant - Vaud

Happy Wednesday all,

I'm looking for a reliable English-speaking tax accountant to prepare my Vaud tax return. (Not a consultant, adviser, tax planner, etc - just an accountant to take care of the paperwork.) I tried doing it on my own using VaudTax, I know it's supposed to be e-a-s-y, but I just had too many questions and ended up spinning my wheels instead of getting the thing done.

Someone located in the Morges/St Sulpice to Nyon region would be spectacular...

(And while I'm here, has anyone heard of or have experience with Fiduciare Reddani (Nyon), Veronique Lang/Fiduciaire Gland Fidela (Gland), or Fidurolle (Rolle)?)

Thank you!

As an employee with a simple tax declaration, they arew all the same for what you need.

If you have property transactions, shares etc, then you need to look around a little.

Should cost between Chf 125-200.-- for a simple tax declaration.

Why not see if the Vaud tax office has someone there who could go through the form with you? One you understand it, it's simple to do again the following year.

Well, I'm awfully hesitant to test out that great progress I've been making in my French classes on a government tax official...and besides that, we will need some advice on a few things. It's not just entirely filling out the boxes. Our situation isn't super complicated, but we're not fresh-faced college students living the simple life, either...

Hello,

we had a good experience with Reddani in Nyon. Cost is aligned with Swiss market (expensive vs. France) but they handled all discussions and paper with tax authority (perfect English).

My advice is stay well clear of the one mentioned above..
if you like your arms and legs.

I'd Recommend Fiduciaire Fanny Weinmann or Grandjean Annabelle Fiduciaire

These will charge 250 for a simple return..

Whereas the other one charged me over 10k

Re: Looking for tax accountant - Vaud

Bumping this again to see if anyone has other suggestions. I've tried:

Fiduciaire Fanny Weinmann - looks good, quick reponse but no capacity to take on new clients at present

Grandjean Annabelle Fiduciaire - not clear they speak English, would prefer someone near Nyon

Reddani - Google reviews look suspect to me. Many of the positive ones read like they've been written by same person (very similar wording etc). Negatives ones mention rates and integrity of process. So not appealing.

CRF - I've used them for while. Ok but not very responsive or attentive to getting details right which can make process tedious.

Anyone else out there with suggestions in Vaud, idealy close to Nyon?

Thanks

Of course I didn't .. They were all super nice etc. Met them in the office, told me they'd email me asking for required docs etc.. (it was my first time) .. The email back and forth dragged on for a long time, couple of months.. "Please send us bank statement from xyzzy" "Please send us copy of abc.. " etc etc.. Eventually my return was submitted and accepted ok but they billed me everything, a huge list.. Send email, read email, file email, scan document, check document, double check document... etc etc. Total overkill.

Grandjean Annabelle does speak EN.. I only do a very simple tax return, works fine for me. Maybe you need something more specific.

Just read above for redanni

Wha? I find it hard, neh impossible, to understand what they could possibly have been doing to charge that much,

FWIW We just got our 2019 declaration in, not exactly a simple one, with muttiple rentals and building improvement expenses to factor in, plus we were already late so they had to request extensions etc. Total bill around chf500 from our new accountant in Collombey, VS. I'm sure they would deal with Vaud authorities as well, but they're not close to Nyon, and I've no idea if they have anyone who could deal with you in English, although ISTR that she did understand us when my wife and I were speaking to each other in English.

The Basel accountant we used to use, and for a simpler model, used to charge closer to a thousand, so I'm quite happy.
