Any recommendations for a Zurich area tax consultant?

Looking for a quality small firm (not big 4 accounting)


Capable of dealing with executive type compensation issues (e.g. options, LTIPs, etc) as well as with international stock portfolio issues


Help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the replies and PMs

I decided to go with Aconta.ch and they have been very responsive so far

Will let the forum know once my first tax return is fully completed with them and how that went

Re: Any recommendations for a Zurich area tax consultant?

Thanks for the recommendations.

My relocation company recommend BDO. Just got their quote

Swiss Taxes - 1,500 - 1800
US taxes another 1,500 - 1800

I know things are expensive here in Switzerland but wow... Or is this what it costs? I'm a single guy >120,000 (that's not a brag, just that I have to file a return). I have a few bank accounts and retirement in the US, and a brokerage account.

Re: Any recommendations for a Zurich area tax consultant?

So do it yourself, what's the problem? Unlike US, swiss taxes are designed to be doable by mere mortals and they provide you all the software needed for free. The bulk of the work - collecting all documents you have to do yourself anyway, you're paying a tax consultant mostly to copy-paste the numbers into software and some know-how of where you could deduct some extra things here and there

Even for US I think TurboTax that everyone uses is nowhere near a $1k price tag

Right, 120k is borderline poverty, so nothing to be ashamed of

Re: Any recommendations for a Zurich area tax consultant?

I used Tarantino Treuhand for my tax return this year, as I own real estate in an EU country (NL), I wanted to make sure everything was done correctly. Their fee was lower than initially discussed and I am very pleased with their service - would definitely consider going back next year!

So BDO are a little cheaper than the big 4. From what I understand (I’ve always done my own taxes) a small firm will do your Swiss taxes for a couple of 100.
