The Federal Tax Administration (FTA) is responsible for collecting the lion's share of federal receipts. The Main Value Added Tax Division of the Federal Tax Administration (FTA) is one of the biggest organisational units in the Federal Department of Finance and employs around 600 people.
The FTA is also active in the area of e-government. It was in charge of the prioritised project «Electronic VAT returns» in the eGovernment Switzerland programme for 2008 to 2015. In the strategic plan for 2016 to 2019, the FTA is pressing ahead with the propagation and functional improvement of electronic VAT returns in the context of the eVAT strategic project.
