Foreign exchange rates FTA

Value added tax

For the conversion of charges in foreign currency, either the monthly average rate published by the Federal Tax Administration FTA or the daily exchange rate (sell) can be used. Taxable persons who are part of a group can use their internal group exchange rate for the conversion.

Monthly average exchange rates
(German version)
These average rates correspond to the arithmetic mean of the daily rates published by the FTA from the 25th day of a month to the 24th day of the following month.
Daily exchange rate
The daily exchange rate is transmitted by the Federal Office for Customs and Border Security FOCBS.
Group exchange rate In the case of invoices in foreign currency between companies of the same group (group relationship), the VAT may be calculated using the group exchange rate. The conversion at the group rate must be maintained for one year.
