Geneva accountants? Q on moving to Switzerland after selling a company (American).

Hi everyone,

My wife got into a phd program in Geneva, and we are looking to move there end of this year! (We are American so dealing with all the tax implications)

Does anyone have some recommendations for accountant/tax experts in Geneva they like?

I am needing to verify some info I received, and given the importance I want at least two more people to verify what I've been told.

I am selling a business I've owned for 6+ years right now, prior to moving down there end of September and trying to verify what I've been told so far. I've had one accountant in Geneva tell me that as long as the sell is made before I move to Switzerland, I wouldn't pay any taxes to Switzerland. That seemed odd given the way the tax year works so I was trying to verify that.

That accountant also said that there are no capital gains in Switzerland so I wouldn't pay anything on the sale of that business' shares. But some online materials seem to question that.

I am wanting to super verify this as it is a large sum of money I've worked very hard for.
