What do I need to consider when setting up a company in Switzerland?

The choice of the right legal form depends on various factors, including the number of parties involved, the desired liability and the required start-up capital. The formation of a company begins with the preparation of the necessary documents such as articles of association, public deed and entry in the commercial register. In the case of an AG or GmbH, a capital contribution confirmation is required, which is obtained by paying in the company capital at a Swiss bank. All founding documents and the capital contribution confirmation must be notarized before they are submitted to the commercial register office for registration. As soon as the founding documents have been notarized and submitted to the commercial register, the registration takes place. The commercial register office then issues an extract from the commercial register for the newly founded company.
