Switzerland prepares to join EU in eliminating distance selling threshold

30 March 2023

Switzerland currently offers a global VAT registration threshold of CHF 100,000 (approx. £88,000) to foreign sellers looking to sell in the country. This allows foreign traders to avoid the need for VAT registration until their taxable sales exceed this threshold in the country.

However, from January 2024 Switzerland plans to follow the EU by removing this threshold. This will oblige non-resident sellers to VAT register from the first sale that they make in the country. 

Furthermore, Switzerland also plans to implement VAT obligations on transactions made through online marketplaces, which means the VAT reporting and collection will move from sellers to the digital platforms themselves.
