CASH TRANSACTIONS & DUE DILIGENCE ACT

Rheingold Edelmetall AG, as a dealer of goods, is subject to the DDA (Due Diligence Act). This law obliges us to verify the identity of our customers for cash transactions of CHF 10'000 and more. This is done regardless of whether the transaction is carried out in a single or multiple transactions. The identification is done with an offical photo ID. In addition, a written declaration of the owner must be issued.

For this, a fee of CHF 200.00 per document will be charged. If cash transactions are made with a customer who has already been identified in association with another cash transaction, we must create a business profile. This profile must contain information on the origin of the assets and the purpose and intended nature of the business relationship. Cash transactions can be conducted with Rheingold Edelmetall AG in Swiss francs and euros. The minimum volume for a sale or a purchase is 4,000 EUR. However, for cash transactions we reserve the right to charge a fee of at least 1%. Please note that cash withdrawals require preregistration.

Other relevant legal requirements

Anyone traveling from an EU country to Switzerland or vice versa and carrying cash with a total value of 10,000 euros or more must inform the relevant national customs office, even if they are not explicitly requested to do so.

The import and export of precious metals is handled particularly strictly. Since coins and bars of gold or silver are not treated as cash but as goods subject to declaration, such goods worth of Sfr 300 or more must be declared to the customs authorities. The basis for calculation is the actual market value, not the printed nominal value.
