Founding a company in Switzerland is a fast and simple process. Despite the unburdened course of action we recommend consulting a legal expert.

Founding a company in Switzerland

The core of every start-up is a business idea. This concept need not be a pioneering invention; you can simply provide an existing product with a new modality. The next step is putting your idea into reality. This means choosing the appropriate legal form which depends on a number of different variables: invested capital, type of leadership, personal liability, number of involved proprietors and many more. In recent years we have witnessed a growing interest in the limited liability company as a legal form. Despite its relatively low capital requirement, the LLC offers limited liability to all proprietors and is therefore ideal for a start-up. After choosing a suitable legal form, the next step is to compile all the necessary documents and authenticate them through a solicitor. These include the statutes, the application for the entry into the commercial register and various other documents. In case you are founding a company with a statutorily prescribed share capital (e.g. LLC, AG), you will need a confirmation of your capital contribution. As soon as you have been entered into the commercial register, your company has been founded and you are ready to work on your business idea.
