No need, you can store things under the bridge. There is a nice fella down there that goes by the name of Slim...tell him that LIB sent ya...and he'll show you where to deposit your products. There is a small administrative fee of 250CHf to pay in advance...just let me know when you'll be there.

Re: Online business -offshore and warehouse

Welcome to the Forum

What exactly is your question? Are you looking for a warehouse or want feedback about running a Gibralter based company here?

Re: Online business -offshore and warehouse

so you want a website based in Gibraltar, but want the warehouse here and to send the goods from here? think you need to do a bit more research on tax laws first.

Re: Online business -offshore and warehouse

I ll take a look ..thanks for the tip. I know that companies who sell all over Europe have multiple warehouses but i don't know exacctly how they do it...
Need to import first the good from manufacturer then send them by mail from lucerne and the receipt will be from a Gibraltar company. I must consult someone who has already done it before...

By consulting a tax expert before they decide how to set up operations.

Re: Online business -offshore and warehouse

At least you'll have to pay Swiss VAT. To do that, you'll need to register and get a tax id.

Like someone said: get a tax consultant.

Why would he have to pay swiss vat taxes ???

He is exporting the goods so he aint need to do that.

Why cant you get them shipped directly to Gibraltar ?

I read it that he wants to ship the goods within Switzerland but invoice from Gibralter.
