The indirect tax climate in the EU is drastically changing. The VAT gap of 150 billion forced the Member States to act rapidly thus resulting in a quick fix agreement and modernization of their approach increasingly using technologies. These quick fixes aim at strengthening the system till the implementation of the definitive VAT regime. One of the most impacting changes for Swiss based companies would be the introduction of the new type of taxable person. The CTP (“certified taxable person”) would be eligible to apply VAT simplifications and reverse charge, i.e. allowing cash flow advantageous VAT treatment.
