Your goals

Globalisation and the penetration of new markets lead to the relocation of business activities and functions to Switzerland (inbound) and to other countries (outbound). Although operational considerations are the primary concerns, the profitability of such undertakings can be increased by a properly aligned tax strategy. It is equally important to ensure that cross-border transfers of business activities do not trigger adverse tax consequences, reducing both profitability and competitiveness. In addition, given the current international tax environment, investments must be underpinned by sufficient operational substance. To meet these complex requirements, projects involving multiple jurisdictions need to be managedby multidisciplinary teams which are coordinated by experienced project managers.

MME Integrated Approach
