Tax and social security consulting for individuals and Directors of the Board

Tax and social security consulting for individuals and Directors of the Board

Consulting for individuals

Cross-border moves, on either an assignment or local basis, are generally accompanied by a more complex tax situation. This includes, for example:

  • Accounting for compensation (e.g. bonuses or equity) earned outside of Switzerland with your former employer
  • On-going overseas personal income or
  • The question of your new domicile for tax purposes (centre of vital interest)

Topics where experience shows that there is a risk of double taxation.

We think you deserve expert advice to ensure proper analysis of your tax situation.

Our services include:

  • Advice prior to international assignment or mobile move on possible tax and social security implications including preparation of calculations
  • Preparation of tax returns (income and wealth tax returns)
  • Review of tax assessments and invoices
  • Communication with the tax authorities
  • Support in reclaiming withholding tax on Swiss dividends, after departure from Switzerland

Consulting for Directors of the Board

In many cases, members of the board of directors hold several mandates, which means that it is not always easy for a company to recognize how the Director’s Fees must be accounted for. Depending on the individual situation of the board member, there may be an obligation to pay taxes and social security contributions abroad.

We believe that you deserve competent support in these matters so that you can concentrate on your role as a board member.

Our services include:

  • Analysis of the tax and social security aspects including advice on the next steps to be taken
  • Support in implementing the chosen course of action, e.g. forms for social security subordination (A1, Certificate of coverage (CoC)), declaration of the Swiss social security contributions
  • Tracking of deadlines or annual review of the situation for you, so you are always up to date.
