Basic capital gain tax question

Hi there,

Sorry for this question if already answered (could not find it) but I am French tax resident and have a Company under my name (Type SASU - Societe par Actions Simplifiees Unipersonelle).

I plan to relocate in Switzerland this year and wondering how to best cash in the cash present in the company.

If I were to pay myself dividend while French tax resident, I would have to pay 30% taxes. If I were to pay myself dividend while Swiss tax resident, the tax rate would be over 40% since I will be Zurich based.

I was thinking of selling my company (which only has cash on its Balance Sheet) once Swiss resident for a specific price and was wondering whether the capital gain I would receive would be taxable in France or Switzerland.

Would you have any idea if that could work?

Thanks for your help.
