The notary also acts as a tax collector of:
- the taxes due to the State in respect of all deeds signed with a notary
- fees charged by the State for the registration of deeds in public registers (Land Register, Register of Commerce)
- other fees and administrative charges due to the State for all the necessary steps in the execution of deeds by the notary.
Therefore our invoices always include our charges and fees, as well as the taxes (registration and VAT duties) and the costs of the Land Register, Register of Commerce, and other administrative or judicial services payable to the State.
In addition, the Chamber of Geneva Notaries in partnership with the cantonal government has established a fixed cost for the setting up of a private limited company (SARL) or a public limited company (SA), which is subject to certain conditions.
In Geneva, the purchase of an apartment can also qualify, under certain circumstances, for partial exemption from registration tax (the so-called Casatax exemption).
The Notaires Unis remain at your disposal to provide a cost estimate for whatever operation you have in mind. They will also inform you about a possible fixed-cost benefit for setting up your SARL or SA, as well as the partial exemption from registration tax (Casatax) for the purchase of your apartment.
