Compliance, tax and governance optimization for your blockchain project

Launch your blockchain project safely in Switzerland 

Get the legal foundation ready

Governance

From the token allocation to founders to voting rights, the money and power structures require a proper legal framework, be it a foundation, association, service company, or a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). Get a corporate structure tailored to your vision. 

Regulatory compliance

The launch of DeFi protocols, smart contracts, dApps, and the sale of tokens (be it as an ICO, IDO, IGO, STO, IEO or NFT offering), require careful analysis as the regulatory requirements depend on the functionalities of the protocol and the qualification of your token (e.g., security token, utility token, governance token or payment token) 

Tax structuring

From social security contributions to income tax, VAT, and capital gains tax, ensure you understand the tax consequences of the token sale and operation of the protocol. Our crypto tax expert will help you get the complete picture of your tax obligations so that you can plan efficiently.

What it is
  • Goal: A focused workshop with your key stakeholders and our corporate, financial market lawyer, and tax experts is the most efficient way to get to a concrete action plan quickly. The goal is that you have all the information required to make a go / no-go decision on setting up your project in Switzerland, and have a clear road map to execute if you decide to go ahead.  
  • Preparation: To maximize the outcome of our discussion, we will prepare the workshop based on your whitepaper, tokenomics, and similar documents. 
  • 2h workshop (online or in-person): In the workshop, we dig deeper into the details and goals of the project and provide you with different structuring options, current best practices as well as regulatory restrictions. Based on your vision, the goal is always to conclude whether Switzerland is the right place for the project and if so, what the concrete next steps would be for the launch of your token or DeFi protocol.  
  • Assessment summary: We summarize the key points via email, including suggested next steps, specific timelines, and fee estimates. 
Who it is for
  • The workshop is aimed at initiators of all forms of web3, DeFi and other blockchain-based projects as well as any kind of token launches, such as INOs, IDOs, IGOs, STOs, and ICOs. 

 

How long it takes

Once we receive the preparatory documentation, it typically takes us 3-5 business days to prepare, conduct and debrief the workshop
