Re: Do i need to pay VAT if i live in switzerland?

If your company makes enough revenue then yes.

"Value added tax (VAT)
If you generate an annual turnover of more than CHF 100,000, you must pay VAT. You must register with the Federal Tax Administration (FTA) of your own accord within 30 days from when you begin generating income.

You can download a registration form the FTA’s website. SECO’s SME portal also offers explanations of VAT, input tax deduction and accounting approaches.

VAT registration
The online questionnaire will help you determine whether your company is subject to VAT, and allow you, at the same time, to submit the registration."

Your question is not very clear. Medea seems to think you are asking if you should charge VAT to a customer in London if you (being based in CH) are providing the service to them.

I read it as you are asking if you should pay VAT to a service provider based in the UK if your company is registered in Switzerland. If that's the case then you can ask the company in the UK not to charge you VAT as they are effectively exporting their service out of the EU. If they are confident that their paper trail for the work done can prove they did the work and were paid for it by a Swiss based company then they should be happy to invoice without UK VAT.
