Recommend me an accountant? (US, Swiss Tax Filing)

Hello, 


My income is currently "taxed at the source," but my wife has been working in Switzerland as an independent contractor for one of the IOs. And... it's nearing time to prepare both US and Swiss tax filing information. From web searches I can see that there are numerous firms who perform such services in Geneva, but my understanding is that it is much more economical to solicit help from individual accountants. I'm wondering whether anyone can recommend such a person? Thanks in advance!

You could try Fiduciaire Kreco in Geneva.The woman who began the business is very nice. I have no idea how their fees stand up to individual accountants, but they are trusted by many expats.

If you are still looking, I am an American CPA that specializes in preparing tax returns for U.S. expats. I recently started working in Geneva part-time and would be glad to help.

Hi Stephen - PM me if you're still looking, I know a good tax expert.  You don't really want to be going with anyone that has just arrived in Switzerland, you need a 'Swiss' person that is expert and experienced in working with expats with overseas complexities.  My company just gives advice for investments, but obviously there's a lot of cross-over into tax - and over the last 10 years I've learnt from other people's bad experiences that it's best to get it right first time, because all of the cheap cost cutting comes back to bite you 10-fold in later years.

Hi Stephen,


I am doing both US and swiss tax returns, I used to work over 20 years for fiduciary companies, so it was our core business.


When u are taxed at source you don't need to do your Swiss tax return, but as they are taking extra more than they should in order to oblige you to do your tax return, if you don't do it, then you loose every year the difference of overpaid tax.


You can reach me at 078.802.03.03 to fix an appointment to do your tax returns US  and Swiss.


For your information I am far cheaper as all fiduciary in town!
