Global VAT Specialist Group member, Florian Hanslik, from Switzerland-based member firm PrimeTax, publishes a second VAT newsletter explaining the latest developments in Retroactive VAT Group Taxation for Swiss firms to fellow MGI Worldwide with CPAAI accounting network and association members.

VAT Group Taxation

Many group companies apply for VAT group taxation in order to benefit from the considerable financial advantages resulting from the elimination of taxation of internal turnover between the group companies within the same country. The possibility of a potential group taxation is often discussed much later, after the establishment and/or VAT registration of a Swiss company. This newsletter discusses a decision by the Swiss Supreme court if a retroactive establishment as a VAT group is still possible and if it is, what are the conditions applied.
