Access to international markets is the key to success in an ever-developing economy. Businesses are breaking the boundaries of international borders and expanding their geographic horizons more and more rapidly.
Headquarters companies can bring relief by allowing for business consolidation through shared services and by opening the door to interesting possibilities in the field of global tax minimization.
The main functions of Swiss management headquarters are the business management and often the financial management (e.g. treasury and cash pooling) of the group. In addition to these core functions, management headquarters often take on other functions and services along the value chain of the group, such as marketing and sales services, central procurement, legal advice, accounting, human resources services and information technology. As a further and often central component of the value chain, functions with regard to research, development and utilization of intellectual property, such as patent and trade mark rights, are transferred to the Swiss management headquarters.
