According to the CO2 Ordinance, small importers are companies and private individuals who import fewer than 50 vehicles per year. But the needs of the two species differ greatly. These are the CO2 tax solutions for parallel importers.

What is a small importer?

A small commercial importer is a company in the automotive sector that imports and sells fewer than 50 CO2-emitting cars or 15 CO2-emitting light commercial vehicles or two CO2-emitting trucks per year into Switzerland from Switzerland and abroad.

If an imported vehicle is subject to CO2 tax, a corresponding levy is charged by the state.

The amount of this CO2 penalty depends on the vehicle weight and CO2 emissions. Vehicles with low CO2 emissions that are below the target value are exempt from the CO2 tax. However, if there are deviations from the target value, the costs can quickly amount to several thousand francs.

In contrast to large importers, small importers must settle the CO2 levy for each individual vehicle with the Federal Roads Office (FEDRO). Due to this regulation, low-CO2 vehicles cannot compensate for the CO2-polluting vehicles.

CO2 Börse AG has developed a concept for a CO2 levy solution for small importers in order to ensure sustainable profitability despite the CO2 sanction.

If a small importer introduces a CO2-neutral vehicle, CO2 Börse AG grants the company a CO2 bonus for each individual car. CO2 Börse AG offers the CO2 levy at a reduced rate for vehicles with high CO2 emissions.

Thanks to this approach, small importers are not at a direct disadvantage compared to large importers. Even the Swiss consumer advocate praises this CO2 concept as conducive to competition, which ultimately benefits consumers.

Processing the CO2 levy for small importers

CO2 Börse AG has developed the Autoimport platform to enable small importers to calculate the CO2 tax quickly and easily. In addition to the fees and a possible discount, the company can also process the CO2 levy electronically within seconds. Registration for the dealer platform is free of charge and can now be completed here.

CO2 Börse AG is happy to support small importers with questions about the CO2 tax and importing cars into Switzerland.
