    (for more details see «Procedure»)

FAQ

1. Do you actually offer a fixed price for a tax return? Usually, it is charged based on the time spent.

Yes, we actually offer a fixed price for tax declarations. Due to years of experience, and after careful study of the documents received, we can normally estimate the required time for filing your tax return properly, and can therefore make you a fair fixed-price proposal.

You receive transparency, security and a high-quality service from us.

2. How should I understand the three price examples (further up on the website)?

The prices listed above are examples that show what the filing of a tax return by us can cost, depending on income, assets and family circumstances.

The actual costs depend on your specific situation. The actual costs can be found in our proposal.

3. Are you specialized only in expats?

We specialize in all foreigners living in Switzerland. Most of our clients have residence permit B (so, they are taxed at source/pay the withholding tax).

But of course, we also gladly support all other taxpayers, who seek assistance in preparing their tax return.

4. I do not know if I have to file the tax declaration in Switzerland. Can you help me?

Yes, you are right to choose our company. We can gladly carry out necessary clarifications for you. However, we would like to point out that this clarification is for a fee, and that unfortunately, we cannot do it as a complimentary service.

Just fill out the short form above, and leave us a comment or your question. One of our specialists will contact you as soon as possible.

5. Is the delivery of documents by post possible?

Unfortunately, the receipt of documents in physical form is not possible. We rely on a completely digitalized concept. That is one of the reasons that we can offer you a quality service at an attractive hourly rate of CHF 80.

6. Is a personal meeting possible?

Our concept does not provide for personal meetings. From our experience, they are not necessary. This is primarily for the reason that we want to offer you a quality service at an attractive hourly rate.

In the case of complicated tax situations, which require support and advice, a personal meeting in Zurich can be arranged. However, this not a part of the fixed-price proposal and it will be charged separately for the effective time spent, at the hourly rate of CHF 250 excl. Swiss VAT.

7. How long does it take to file a tax return?

The processing time depends directly on the current capacity of our tax experts. It usually takes from 10 to 14 working days – from receipt of payment until your tax return is ready to be sent to the tax authorities.

8. Do you submit my tax return or do I have to do that myself?

As soon as your tax return is ready, you will receive it as a PDF file by e-mail. On request, the original file (tax declaration software) can also be transmitted to you.

Subsequently, you will also receive detailed instructions for transmission of your tax return to the tax authorities.

9. Will my data be deleted after my tax return is ready?

Yes, after completing your tax return, we delete all your data. Only the original file (tax declaration software) remains with us. This serves to facilitate a much more efficient and thus more favorable preparation of your tax return the following year.
