Hello, I would like information about the following situation. I am an EU national (Belgium). If I would startup a consultancy company in Malta that trades only internationally (Belgium, Germany, England, the Netherlands, ...) and if I would move to Malta under the permanent residency scheme for EU nationals, would I qualify for 6/7 tax refund via dividends? Would these dividends be taxed in Malta? Thanks,

I am looking for day trading in Europe in a good tax environment. Being a resident of a high tax country, I plan to move in Malta for a few years and to apply for HNWI residence. Just need to stay 3 months a year in Malta and so for this period I would pay up to 35% tax income + social security costs (do not think there are others taxes)in being self employed (prefer to avoid to create companies if possible) Is this after those 3 months I could trade legally in others countries (not more than 6 months obviously) tax free, the income being not remitted in Malta and knowing that usually double tax agreements consider that income from independent activities should be taxed in the country of residence? Thanks in advance.

Trust in Switzerland

Dear Sirs/Madams, I intend to settle a trust based on a trust agreement with a Swiss trustee. In this regard, I would like to know certain features of taxation of trusts in Switzerland under the following assumptions: - Neither me (the "settlor") nor my children (the "beneficiaries") are Swiss citizen; - The settlor is not resident in Switzerland but the beneficiaries may be or may not be resident in Switzerland; and - Trust assets will consist of shares in investments located outside of Switzerland, e.g. in EU countries or non-EU countries. Questions: - Are there any Swiss taxes on the settlor or beneficiaries at the time of formation of the trust? I understand that there are no Swiss taxes on the non-resident settlor but the beneficiaries may be subject to the Swiss wealth and/or gift tax depending on type of the trust. Is this applicable: (a) for the beneficiaries who are non-resident at time of formation and during the life of the trust or (b) for the beneficiaries who are non-resident at the time of formation but become resident after the formation? - Are there any Swiss taxes on distributions by the trust to the beneficiaries? I understand that in general, except certain distributions relating to the trust capital and capital gains, all distributions by the trust to the resident and non-resident beneficiaries are subject to Swiss income tax. Is this applicable to non-resident beneficiaries receiving distributions from a trust with the all assets located outside of Switzerland? - Is it possible to have a resident or non-resident legal person as beneficiary? - What are the Swiss tax consequences if the trust assets consist of shares of a Swiss holding company with investments all outside of Switzerland and have no business activities in Switzerland. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this respect.
