Further to the 2024 VAT rate adjustment, we are making the new extensions available to generate the new 2024 VAT statement.


The extensions for Swiss VAT 2024 allow you to:

  • Manage both 2018 (7.7%, 2,5%, 3,7% and Net tax rates) and 2024 (8.1%, 2,6%, 3,8% and Net tax rates) rates.
  • Obtain the VAT Report 2024 (paper facsimile or XML file).
  • Obtain the VAT Report 2023 (paper facsimile or XML file).

The new Extensions for Swiss VAT 2024, currently in Beta version, will be released soon and will automatically replace the Extensions for Swiss VAT 2018.

We have also prepared new documentation, to facilitate your transition to the 2024 VAT rates:

Banana Accounting 9 users / Install the 2018 Extension

The Swiss VAT 2024 Extensions are not compatible with Banana Accounting 9 or earlier versions, but will still be installed automatically by overwriting the Extensions for Swiss VAT 2018. 

This procedure is unfortunately unavoidable because the replacement is automatic for all versions of Banana. Later on, when starting the Swiss VAT Extension with Banana Accounting 9, an incompatibility warning will be displayed for Banana 9 users.

However, it is possible to continue using the old Extensions for Swiss VAT 2018 to prepare VAT reports until the end of 2023.
You simply have to reinstall them manually as explained in the section Reinstalling the Swiss VAT Extensions 2018.
However, it is not possible to obtain the new VAT Reports 2024. For this you need to upgrade to the Advanced plan of Banana Accounting Plus.
