Becoming tax efficient means that all options to minimise tax liability have been optimized. For group structures this means the implementation of offshore structures and intelligent cross-company relationships. It means that assets are in the correct place, sitting correctly within the group structure and that borrowings are burdened by the right company or special purpose vehicle.

Cross-company accounting procedures may need to be reviewed. As with any restructure, to become tax efficient may mean a good spring-clean of the business. Knowing the way around international corporate and tax law is essential.

To structure a perfect, tax safe and legal strategy to withstand any tax investigation is paramount in creating a solid corporate structure and to maximise the profitability of the business. At the same time, it must be credible and avoid ‘scrupulous’ jurisdictions that could give the company a bad image to its shareholders. It is equally important that the structures employed does not install fears of the ‘skimming’ of profits away from the shareholders.

Various intelligent and complex financial strategies are employed in these strategies. Offshore structures, tax trusts and SPV’s can be employed to offset tax liabilities, extinguish capital gain and to avoid direct tax. The correct corporate structure can also help in offsetting and lowering VAT / TVA liability, particularly with Swiss – Euro structures.

As well as corporate tax structuring and private tax trusts, ICS can provide senior executives with Swiss residencies connected to their corporate structure to provide not only low corporation taxes but moreover a tax friendly environment to receive dividends and bonuses.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak:

In light of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, we wish to assure all our clients and potential customers that we remain open for business as usual.

Given the travel restrictions being imposed against certain nations and restricted travel to and from Switzerland, we have implemented permissions from our sources and provider groups to conduct meetings over video links and to exchange legal documents via DHL and email. This process will remain in place during the travel restrictions and we would like to assure all existing clients, customers and new applicants that they should not experience any significant delays during this time.

Whilst Switzerland has now entered the removal stage of the lockdown procedure, we are deeply understating that many other countries are not yet at that position to do the same. As a result, we have implemented existing Swiss procedures to undertake our interviews, underwriting and identification procedures online - as many other dynamic Swiss Banks have been using for the last few years.

We are now adopting a remote underwriting mode.
