The Swiss government has announced innovations in the system for filing electronic returns for taxpayers. In particular, the country's Parliament ends the obligation for companies and individuals to sign documents with an electronic digital signature. Instead, a new electronic data verification system will be used.

This innovation will come into force throughout Switzerland, when submitting documents at the Federal and cantonal level. The authorities have not yet disclosed exactly how this system will work, or how the taxpayer will confirm the data.

In addition, other changes will be made to the system. In particular, the Swiss government plans to develop a system of contact between the taxpayer and the Federal tax administration, so that companies can resolve disputes on taxes online.
