If you're paying a professional then they'll almost certainly be VAT registered, so yes, they'll need to add the VAT on their bill to you.

Nothing special about the fees being for a tax return, it could equally well be any other sort of service.

Re: TVA on tax returns

Many thanks for the rapid response. Was wondering though because we are on card legitimation. The previous fiduciare charged us TVA but not the current one

Call them, the fiduciary will certainly know the tax laws.

Re: TVA on tax returns

Certainly but reason we moved rom them was superfluous charges so they are likely to be cagey. Will do some little investigation then also check with other colleagues i guess to see how they handle theirs.
cheers

Re: TVA on tax returns

To determine whether a company is registered for VAT, search on the enterprise register by company name or UID number. VAT status is then found at the bottom of the company entry:

If it's a small 1 man band it's just possible they don't earn enough. If he has not charged VAT, why would you look to pay more?

In general it is a service. So like at the hairdresser, the car mechanic, or a lawyer VAT is due.


If you are exempt from VAT due to your status you will have to submit Form B and present your legitimation card (or permit Ci) before payment. At best before your order or the bill has been printed.

If VAT was not deducted although you submitted form B, you can use Form D to request a reimbursement from the tax office.
https://www.eda.admin.ch/eda/en/fdfa...leges/tva.html

If the company does not charge VAT as they do not make a turnover of more than 100k than there is no VAT to be deducted.

Looks like you do not know about Form B and specially Form D. See the link above.
