Duty free storage

Invest in white precious metals and purchase tax-free!

If you would like to invest your capital safely in physical silver, platinum or palladium, you have to pay the statutory value-added tax. However, there is a possibility to prevent the accumulation of VAT in accordance with the law by means of selection of the storage location and – in this way – to equate with tax-free gold.



Purchase precious metals without value-added tax

Bonded warehouses are the easiest way to buy and sell white precious metals entirely without the usual VAT. These are warehouses, which are used for the customs-/duty- and tax-free storage of goods.

The advantage of tax exemption results from the fact that the precious metals remain stored there between purchase and sale. The safekeeping of precious metals in a bonded warehouse is possible from an investment volume of CHF 10,000, -. Every six months, you will receive an official stock statement with the status/lineup of your precious metal-holdings and an annual auditor's certificate.

If you would like a delivery of your holdings, this is also possible. Remember, however, that by leaving the tax-free zone, the VAT is due.
