VAT on digital services

Hello all,

I have a question related to a change in VAT law that requires all providers of digital services with worldwide turnover exceeding 100k CHF selling services to Swiss residents to register in CH and appoint a local representative.

If I buy a recurring online subscription from a US company, and the company does not add VAT to their invoice, what should I do?

It is a small company and is likely to have no idea about the Swiss VAT law. I can tell them about the law in CH, but I seriously doubt they will register and appoint a local representative. They may have only a few Swiss customers and some may be making only a one-off subscription.

I am worried that the company may refuse to sell their services to me.

And how are the Swiss authorities going to enforce this new VAT legislation?

Any advice will be much appreciated!

Not your responsibility as a customer.
