incorporating GmBH in Schwyz

Hi,

I have looked for this information in other posts but couldn't find an answer.

Is it possible to incorporate a GmBH in a low-tax Canton like Schwyz, even if I am working as consultant in different cantons and I am domiciled in Vaud?

I heard I would just need to have a domicile in Schwyz, in order to receive the mail, right?

In order to avoid disputes with Tax authorities and in order to prove that decisions for this company are made in Schwyz, do I need to have somebody in my Company (maybe without the right of signature) from Schwyz?

Do you know if there are any umbrella companies organizing this kind of scheme?

If you have the money to need to answer this question don't you think you might be better off paying for and asking a tax professional?

Re: incorporating GmBH in Schwyz

A GmbH has a company address and that can be anywhere you like. The issue that you'll have is that company address does need to exist so either you get an office (costly) or you get something like a PO box and this acts as the registered address of the business; but it will cost you to set something like this up.

Depending on the turn over you expect, it may not be worth the effort. Perhaps speak to an account to work out the fine details regarding costs incurred vs tax savings.

But decisions for this company wil not be made in Schwyz will they? It is just a dodge for you to avoid paying your fair share. You live in Vaud so pay your tax there too, then the community in which you live benefits.

OK fine, but you can work for that company at 70% and then the rest leave it in the company...

Re: incorporating GmBH in Schwyz

Then why set up in a low-tax canton if there is no benefit? Of course there is a benefit otherwise people wouldn't do it.

Well guys,

Double checking with my tax accountant he told me that this format is not possible, better do the correct way and incorporate in the canton where you live.
