Difference with tax completion service & Treuhand

I am interested to know what the difference is. I have several offers from companies who tell me for there tax completion service they charge, lets say between 100-150 CHF fixed. While the same company also tell me that their Treuhand service is charged at 120-150 CHF/Hr plus VAT expected to take 2-3 hours of their time

What is the difference? Is it better to pay for the Treuhand service, do they find more things to write off in tax? How can the same company offer what seems to be quite a quick relatively cheap service and a much more expensive and timely service for what to me seems to be the same thing

I am talking about personal tax returns and not company.

Re: Difference with tax completion service & Treuhand

The lower is for people with straightforward tax returns. The higher is for people with more complex arrangements.

But once you've had it done by a professional once, unless your circumstances change dramatically, you can just carry over what the did last year into this year. Especially if your Kanton provides you with software.

A simple tax return takes about 45 mins
