Repatriation is the return of capital, invested abroad, for subsequent investment in your primary country of residence.
Capital repatriation is typically related to capital export issues.
When we speak about capital export, we mean the legal export (direct or portfolio investments and loans) as well as the
transfer of funds via legal commercial transactions (transfer pricing, dividend payments, interest payments, royalties,
etc.). As a result, a portion of funds from these transactions is accrued on the accounts of foreign companies controlled
by our clients. This kind of capital export does not involve any violation of currency or other legislation.
This capital may be repatriated as foreign investments in the country of origin. This is a logical solution, as these
local investment opportunities make the most sense for our clients.
We can help you reinvest your capital in the country of its origin
Capital repatriation and
business financing via foreign structures
The most efficient
capital repatriation mechanism is the creation of low-tax holding structures in Switzerland, which
is among the top ten countries in the world, attractive for setting up of holding companies owned by foreign investors.
In order to achieve financial security through reinvestment in your local assets, MB GROUP SWITZERLAND AG
will help you establish a holding company that will remain fully under your control and management. As a next step, this company
receives a loan in Swiss bank, using its assets as a pledge, thus getting funds for reinvestment.
Business financing via
foreign structures: options
1. Provision of loans (investing in the expansion of
production, etc.) or
financial aid on a pro-bono basis.
2. Founding a joint venture with a specific percentage
participation, or a company that is fully
financed by foreign capital (foreign investments in
3. Collaboration among foreign and local companies
based on contractual
without founding a new legal entity (investing in
the achievement of common goals).
Cooperation in line with Option 1 does not presume your direct participation in local business as a foreign investor.
However, the advantage to this approach is the investment of your foreign financial resources in the development of your
own local company.
Options 2 and 3 will involve your Swiss holding as a foreign investor, and brings together local and foreign
financial resources, when your Swiss holding takes part in financing of your own local company.
At MB GROUP, we are prepared to offer your Swiss holding company extensive legal support
and ongoing maintenance services, such as secretarial and
back-office administration, accounting and auditing, balance preparation and tax declaration processing.
