HOLDING STRUCTURE IN SWITZERLAND
As being an owner of Swiss holding company, you in
person are not a bank client, and, respectively you are out of battles between foreign governments
and Swiss banks.
For the purpose of asset protection, we at MB GROUP SWITZERLAND AG assist you in setting up a Swiss holding company,
while you contribute your money and assets (those which can be valued, i.e. stocks, bonds, shares, precious
metals and stones, real estate, etc.) in the company's capital.
Once contributed, all these assets, as before, may be controlled and managed by you, as being the owner and
managing director of a Swiss holding company; at the same time, the assets are held in
the name of a Swiss holding company (i.e. separate legal entity) and therefore, are free from any claims
directed against you in person.
Needless to say that holding companies in Switzerland benefit from reductions in corporate income tax at both
cantonal and federal levels.
We at MB GROUP SWITZERLAND AG provide personalized assistance in obtaining tax
rulings for your holding company.
FAMILY FOUNDATION IN SWITZERLAND
By creating a family foundation you can place your assets
outside your estate, outside the reach of creditors, judgments, malpractice and divorce, thus making
the assets much less vulnerable.
A family foundation (Stiftung) is a separate legal entity, privately funded by you by dedicating funds
and assets (real estate, enterprises, etc.) for a specific purpose, for instance:
contributing to a charitable cause
organizing insurance and pension plans for your family members
providing continuing employment and activity for your family members
identifying and preserving your family name for years to come
It is most common in Switzerland to organize pension funds and other welfare schemes of corporations in
the form of the foundation. In accordance with Swiss law, this specific type of foundations is exempt from taxation.
The officers of the foundation have, in principle, no decision-making power, only an executive function,
in accordance with a will of the founder.
OTHER OPTIONS OF ASSET PROTECTION
Due to the investor anonymity, provided by Swiss
corporations (AG / SA), your name as an owner of such Swiss holding company will never be disclosed. At the same
time, your name as a managing director will be publicly known, what is not always desired.
We are ready to assist you avoiding this, through a so-called fiduciary agreement between you and a
Swiss director, who will treat your Swiss holding company with absolute discretion and in accordance
with your instructions, while the decision making remains in your hands.
Another option is to use the existing holding structure, already created by us (see shelf company). It enables you to contribute your funds and/or assets,
thus increasing the registered share capital of the company.
Unlike banks, we will then manage your funds and assets in accordance with your instructions, under
condition of anonymity, while dividends earned will be regularly paid to you as shareholder.
