Search the Swiss busi­ne­ss register

The Swiss Confederation is split into 26 cantons, each keeping its own busi­ne­ss register. VATify.eu verifies com­pany data in the com­pany registry of the Swiss statistics office (UID-Register). Retrieved data is comprised of the tax status of the com­pany, title and address, VAT ID and registration number and the status of the registration number.

Collection of addi­ti­o­nal in­for­ma­ti­on (shareholders, signatories) is planned for the future, retrieving it from canton registers.

Even though Switzerland is part of the Schengen Area, it is not part of the EU and data on Swiss com­pa­nies is not avail­able on VIES.Use VATify.eu to verify Swiss VAT IDs and schedule daily monitoring, or:
