Complex international asset holding structures are a well-proven way to achieve these goals. Such structures are typically build on legal entities in Switzerland and the neighbouring Principality of Liechtenstein, but may additionally include companies or trusts in other European countries or even off-shore jurisdictions also. Special attention must be payed to the new OECD rules for international Automatic Information Exchange (AIE/OECD-CRS), in order to still maintain a certain degree of privacy for the investor. As large fortunes often include assets in a number of different countries, the challenge of designing the optimal holding structure includes also analysis of cross-boarder taxations, withholding taxes on international dividend payments and aspects of heritage taxation. A skillful use of Double Taxation Agreements is indispensable in order to achieve the best results for our clients.
