Ok. Hypothetically SHTF but some financial structures stay stable. Enough that precious metals can be sold/traded anyway. So here we are, accumulating for years and suddenly PM's get to a fair enough value and property/commodities drop to fair value. The basic idea is that we sell PM's for currency and purchase with the proceeds. Ok. I understand the personal tax implications of that. So if one takes it to the next level, say getting a group of stackers together and pooling resources (oz), what would be the tax issues there? The proposition would be to pool equal oz initially and then when all contributors reach a consensus to sell, the trigger is pulled. Then it is spent according to the direction of that company. My questions are: Should there even BE a company? What are the implications of putting the PM's into company ownership both in terms of Tax/CGT etc? Is there a more efficient and better method to pool resources? My feeling was that it was prudent to create a company so that everything is done transparently for all members of the proposed agreement. WHEN would be the best time to start a company? With regards to a company, does CGT rate change if it holds it for a year as for an individual? Would it be prudent to set it up now? (I will of course do my own due diligence on any advice given but I would like some direction with this idea) Thanks for any input.
