Hi all,
I need to send an invoice from Germany to Switzerland. In the past, for the EURO countries I've noted certain information on my bills, e.g. my/their VAT number, my IBAN number and "Ort der Leistung: XXX (depending on the country); §3a (3) i.v. (4) UStG."
Do I need any additional information for a EURO invoice to be paid from Switzerland?
Thanks in advance,
J.

All the usual stuff Jul 23, 2008

I did a job for a Swiss agency last year and just put all the usual stuff on the invoice - my and their names, addresses, VAT Reg. no. and tax code, my a/c, IBAN and BIC. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Thanks Jul 23, 2008

I'm assuming that you didn't charge VAT from your country of origin??

No VAT Jul 23, 2008

For invoices to VAT-registered non-Italian clients I have to add a sentence (in Italian) to the effect that VAT is not applicable, referring to the relevant Italian legislation. I imagine you probably need to do something similar, but that's for your own country's requirements rather than those of Switzerland.
