Tax Return Recap & Optimization

One of our key principles is to support our clients so that they can make informed decisions. This includes making sure you understand your tax return, as this is often the basis for future optimization discussions.
So rather than sending you on your way after filing, we provide you with various elements to give you more control.

Tax Office Assessment Review

The Swiss tax return is provisional in nature and is subject to a case-by-case assessment by the tax authorities. This means that they will check the contents of the return and either use the same figures in the tax assessment or make changes. In any case, within 30 days of receiving the tax assessment, the assessment must be reviewed and any objections raised. Depending on the canton, the waiting period for the assessment can vary considerably.

An English Copy For Your Filing, So You Understand What Has Been Submitted

One Place for Everything

Addressing the shortfall in cantonal digital tax services, our portal offers a unified solution for easy access to your tax details, irrespective of your canton of residence.

Tax Year Overview

Navigate your Swiss tax history with ease using our portal’s dashboard. It clearly displays which tax years have been successfully submitted and completed, alongside those still pending or in progress, ensuring you’re always up-to-date.

Liability Insights

Tracking tax payments and understanding your balance can be complex for expats, especially with variables like withholding tax and relocating across cantons. Our service simplifies this by providing a clear breakdown of your tax liabilities, making it straightforward to stay informed.

Assessment Status Tracker

In some cantons, it can take the tax office more than a year to conduct their tax assessment, and in most cantons there’s no simple way to check the status online. Our service includes a status tracker, eliminating the need for direct inquiries to the tax office and keeping you informed about the progress of your assessments.

Access All Your Tax Documents

Access your tax files conveniently in one location, meticulously organized by tax year. This includes submitted tax forms, their English translations, documents you’ve provided, as well as all checklists, onboarding materials, and offers. Experience complete transparency and maintain control.
