In the focus: Mandatory VAT Registration for NonEstablished Businesses Making Electronic and Telecommunication Services

As of 1 January 2018 a non-established business making electronic and telecommunication services to a recipient in Switzerland must register for VAT in Switzerland, if the Swiss recipient itself is not registered for VAT, unless the non-established business can prove that its worldwide revenue from all its supplies and services is less than CHF 100,000 per year. Up to 31 December 2017 such a non-established business has only to register for VAT, if its electronic and telecommunication services to Swiss recipients not registered for VAT amounts to CHF 100,000 or more per year.
