When importing into Switzerland, a 4% tax on motor vehicles and 8% value added tax are applied for cars produced in Europe. These customs duties are to be paid upon crossing the border. Save yourself the red tape and paying these customs duties in cash and handle importing your vehicle conveniently through CO2 Börse. By handling things through our customs account you don’t need any cash at customs and can settle the customs duties fuss-free with a payment slip. In addition, you receive an import declaration from us in advance and save the time spent waiting at a customs agency – you can go straight to customs.
We require the following documents:
- Vehicle invoice (purchase contract) – with and without VAT
- EUR-1 document as proof of origin
As the customs declarant, we are subject to the obligation to retain records for 10 years and therefore require the original documents after import.
