Many countries offer incentives to businesses to move their home offices there. These incentives are usually in the form of tax relief that allows business owners to keep more of the profits their companies earn. Even if you don’t have a business that manufactures products or offers services, you can form holding companies in many countries like Switzerland to make money.
Why Form a Holding Company?
There are many reasons to form a holding company, especially if you are a business owner. A holding company buys the stock of businesses to make money and, if it purchases enough stock, it can have controlling interest in those companies. If you are a business owner and your company has subsidiaries located in other parts of the world, you can use a holding company to protect your assets.
This allows you, and your organisation, to maintain control of the majority of your company’s shares to ensure you can control your business. Members of a family can form a holding company to stabilise and protect the family’s assets when the founder of the business has passed away. It allows them to maintain the voting shares in the family business so they can keep control of it.
Another reason that holding companies are formed is to benefit from the tax advantages that some holding companies can receive. In some cases, holding companies may qualify for very low tax rates, or they may not need to pay any taxes at all on trade that takes place outside of the holding company’s territory. If you form a holding company in Switzerland, then you may not be taxed on transactions that are made outside the country.

Other Business Formations
Along with holding companies, a business formation company can also help business owners transfer their companies from other countries and find the services they need to keep their companies running. This includes helping them find facilities to continue producing products and offices from which the staff can work. They can also help you find employees for your business, equip your offices with furniture, and get the IT service you need to stay in contact with vendors, clients and your branch offices in other locations.
