Legal structure

How do you ensure that the token does in fact legally represent the asset? This depends on the asset type and our experts can guide you through all details of securely linking an asset to a token, be it as ‘ledger-based securities’ as per art. 973d of the Swiss code of obligations, through an SPV or simply by setting up the contracts properly.  

Regulatory compliance

The regulatory treatment of tokenized assets requires careful analysis as the regulatory requirements depend on the type of underlying asset and the way the asset has been tokenized (e.g., whether a token representing art is a security depends the legal structure behind it) 

Tax structuring

From VAT and capital gains tax to withholding tax, ensure you understand the tax consequences of the token as the issuer as well as for the holders of the tokens. Our crypto tax experts will help you get the complete picture of your tax obligations so that you can plan efficiently.
