Dear Clients, dear Friends,

Further to the coronavirus outbreak, the Federal Council has declared that an ‘extraordinary situation’ exists in Switzerland per the Epidemics Act; the Council of State of the Canton of Vaud has formally recognized the state of emergency per the Act on the Protection of the Population.

All the population being called for to act responsibly and with solidarity, taxadvice ltd liab. co of course participates in this collective effort. Accordingly, several organizational measures have been taken, both in order to protect our employees’ and clients’ health and safety, as to keep our activity running as smoothly as possible, all this while of course ensuring strict confidentiality of all clients’ information.

The following rules are presently applicable:

  • no visitors are allowed anymore in our offices;
  • most of our staff works from home;
  • one single person only is in principle present in our offices;
  • a service is therefore operated every weekday, on usual office hours.

Other measures may be taken in the future, depending on the evolution of the situation and on other recommendations to be issued by federal and cantonal public authorities.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience which may be caused by this new organization and hope we can count on your understanding should you observe that our staff shows some lesser reactivity than usual.

You can therefore notice that our activity and our commitment do not stand still, and that we of course remain available, be it by

  • telephone (022 / 361 30 47)
  • email (info@taxadvice.ch)
  • skype
  • postal mail (15, rue de la combe – 1260 nyon)

In this spirit of responsibility and solidarity, some of you might wish to make a gift in favour of a non-profit or charitable institutions in connection with the COVID-19 disease. Please find hereafter a non-exhaustive list of fundraising campaigns being organized in this context:

As a reminder, at certain conditions, such a charity might be tax deductible (art. 33a LIFD and art. 37 al. 1 i LI-VD).​

The whole team with taxadvice ltd liab. co thanks you for your trust and for your understanding, and wishes to see you soon safe and healthy, as well as your loved ones.

Kind regards
