Licencing Companies

Thanks to its extensive network of double taxation agreements and to the agreement concluded with the EU, Switzerland is an ideal place to set up intermediary licensing companies, whereby the paying company may deduct the royalties from its taxable profits and the Swiss company shall pay a limited amount of tax on the royalties received.

Use and advantage of Licensing Companies:

In combination with a company located abroad and owning IP rights, Switzerland is an ideal place to locate a licensing company utilising its extensive taxation treaty.
