VAT Summary (Report)

Documentation •
In this article

The VAT Summary is a journal that reports VAT movements and balances, according to the parameters set and options selected. 

It is automatically processed by the programme and can be saved and archived in PDF format, proving very useful during VAT audits, audits and tax audits, even years later.

For users who do not wish to have automation for the online management and transmission of VAT data, the VAT Summary becomes essential in order to be able to calculate the VAT amounts to be entered manually in the Swiss paper return or on the Swiss FTA portal.

If you wish to have a complete automation of the Swiss VAT Report and of the electronic transmission of VAT data, greatly accelerating and simplifying your work, we recommend using the new VAT 2024 extensions, available in the Advanced plan of Banana Accounting Plus.

The VAT report is obtained by clicking on the menu Reports > VAT report
