Key ICT project Fiscal IT

Federal Tax Administration

Key facts

With the FISCAL IT programme, the Federal Tax Administration (FTA) is replacing its existing specialist applications which have reached the end of their lifespan. At the same time, it is making its IT system landscape uniform and transferring it to a modern ICT architecture. This combination has led to technical and operational challenges, triggering postponements and additional costs on several occasions1. At the time of the SFAO audit, the FTA intended to replace the old STOLIS system in the “Direct Federal Tax, Anticipatory Tax and Stamp Duty” (DAS) organisational area by September 2017. In the area of VAT, the FTA is planning to replace the old MOLIS system by the end of 2018.
