Tax Advice on starting a new company

Hi all,

my name is Marc, i am starting a new XYZ SARL with equity of 20'000chf.

the plan is to sell 60% of it to a foreigner investors, a month after the creation of the company, for about 30'000chf, with a capital gain on the 60% of 18'000.

I already have another ABC SARL of which i own 100%.

Option a) i start the XYZ SARL as Marc
Option b) i start the XYZ SARL as ABC Sarl

1) Will i pay less taxes on the capital gain if i start the XYZ SARL as Marc or as ABC Sarl?

2) Are there other reasons, different than taxes, for which i should chose one or the other option?

thank you very much,

marc

There is no capital gains tax on selling shares?

Hi,

if the SARL is the owner of the new company then this is an asset and if you sell it the SARL has to declare it as income and pay taxes.

Hope this helps,

Romi
