The Big Digital Recovery: The Future of Retail
In Switzerland - where everyone is is taxed at source, Taxly helps customers digitally create and submit their tax returns in less than 10 minutes.
Swiss tax returns are notoriously complicated, lengthy and expensive to complete. Each of the 26 Swiss cantons has its own tax regime, rules and form.
Taxly enables users in Switzerland to submit tax returns in all of the 26 cantons for a fraction of the price and time.
Their web app is supported by EY and KPMG, and after the initial launch in February 2020, it will be rolled out across Europe – Austria will be next.
Splendid began working with taxly in August 2019 to assist them with scaling-up a design and development team for a tax filing application aimed at Swiss Generation Z and Millennial users.
“We have re-engineered every part of the customer experience and consolidated it across the 26 cantons. The result: A purpose built, customer focused, technology first, legacy free tax system.”
