    International Tax Planning: possibilities offered by the laws of different countries are combined to create models that add up to a total benefit. Such schemes for example utilize possibilities of double tax agreements but also benefit from differences in corporate laws or national tax laws.

    Teamwork with your tax consultant: Zugimpex works together as closely as possible with tax advisors of customers, and adds to their service.

    Most important -the realization: tax planning offers opportunities, but requires actual implementation and good documentation. Not the model, but this implementation is the real success factor. Those who neglect it act like a boxer without coverage: sooner or later, a punch will knock him down!

    Increase in sales and earnings:  why only look for ways to save taxes while maintaining existing business? Suppose we find a way to combine a sales strategy of your products and services with tax benefits and thus enable your business to expand rapidly, would this be interesting for you?

    Fiduciary management: is sometimes a legitimate way to do business, if the client does not want to appear, for example if there is a competition clause in a work contract or if sales of other products are forbidden in an exclusive agency agreement. Trust mandates are widely used but are not always the best solution and create high costs.

    If trusteeship is nevertheless required, there are solutions. Such mandates as a financial intermediary are not administrated by Zugimpex, but by another company of our group which periodically undergoes all required money laundering examinations and which has to write all the necessary documentation.

    Anti money laundering legislation: persons or companies that act as a financial intermediary have to comply with legal requirements, and this is enforced by the state with threat of sanctions. Since we have not decided on the law and cannot change it, our opinion about the laws is irrelevant. Therefore we ask our customers: if you need fiduciary services, please do not to debate about money laundering laws with us, but prepare information to fill in the papers:

    • Bring a copy of your passport/ID, we have to store it
    • Filling in the form to declare the beneficial owner
    • Filling in the form “profile of the business “: origin of the assets and use of assets, explanation of your business activitie
    • Filling in the form about the risk of money laundring
    • Inform us about changes of persons or changes of business, so that the organization, who periodically performs money laundering examinations with us, will not find any deviation between the information on the forms and the actual transactions.

    In any case, everything must pay off for you  and this is only the case if your additional benefit is higher than all additional costs including those of your time and of tax consulting.
