Structuring / Relocation

Swiss quality pays off: planning business models and group structures efficiently.

Both globalization in general and the penetration of new markets lead to the relocation of entrepreneurial business activities and functions to Switzerland (inbound) or abroad (outbound).

As an entrepreneur, you are constantly striving to make your business model efficient in terms of both organization and taxation, and to optimize the group structure - in order to meet the complex international documentation requirements at the same time.

In this context, we are happy to support you, among other things, in the development of individual and robust business models, in the relocation of business activities to Switzerland or in the relocation of functions abroad.
