Doe's Tax has an effect on state corps when I try to perform an IPO?Because so far I can't perform IPO's on the state corps,I had tax set at 25%,then I drop it down to 20%,and still can't perform an IPO.Now the tax is set at 10% with 90% profit transfer that equals 100% profit to the country's revenue.What am I doing wrong?

Requirements for being able to IPO changed many times in past and I lost track, however, it seems "Assets" of a corporation needs to be over 80B and corporation has to make (certain level? of) profit. You might wanna look into Game News for more details.

In this sense taxing should not matter, and the only thing taxing could influence is perhaps Market Value.

Anthony, taxes only affect market value indirectly. A company which has less tax will have more profit and will, therefore, have a higher value.

Charging companies 0% tax will maximise your profit.

State and national corporations automatically transfer cash to the owning state when the corporation has over $50B. This is a form of automatic cash transfer, which is effectively 100%. Setting your profit transfer to 0% will also maximise the profits of your corporations.

For these reasons, I set tax and profit transfer to 0%. My market value is maximised and i recieve 100% of the profit of all my corporations.

After an IPO the profit will transfer to stock holders no necessarily the country.

Anthony, I think the P/E ratio used to be included in addition to what zdenek posted. your taxes would lower earnings which raises price/earnings. I haven't checked anything recently.

Ah, apologies, in my comments I was referring exclusively to state and national corporations.

Since my country has 100% state and national corporations, not entirely through choice, I sometimes forget to be sufficiently distinctive in my comments.

After I read you'r comment,0% taxes should be able to bring down the p/e ratio,is that correct?You do need to be in profit range too,not negative,so there for the profit transfer should increase aswell.I also can perform ipo now,it take's time,I think the way you will know how to perform ipo,is the estimated market value in gold coins,which has to be in 0.40GC in order to perform an ipo.Do a bit of study on that one.I will set my taxes to 0% to see if the p/e ratio will go down.At the moment my p/e ratio is 17.2 on 10% taxes.If the p/e ratio do go down on 0% taxes,that's good,because that mean's more profit to the country.As the saying goe's low p/e ratio the better the profit will be and more value the company is.Correct me if I'm wrong.Thank's.

Actually,you were right!To perform ipo is based on the "Assets",around 80B above.Another question is,what's the best way to keep p/e ratio down?Is that overall buying and selling and aswell as taxes?Or what?I'm sorry about this.I'm just doing trial and error's on different thing's to see what work's best.No one is perfect after all.
