Commercial companies, foundations, and associations
Under Swiss law, there are several types of commercial companies. The simplest is the so-called “Sole proprietorship” and the most complex is the “Company Limited by Shares”.
These are the legal vehicles for doing business in all its forms.
The man or woman who runs his or her own business or wants to expand it must sooner or later come up against company law, which has a number of advantages. These include the limitation of financial liability towards third parties, the manner of cooperation with partners, and the tax consequences. Thus, depending on the needs, it is important to choose between a sole proprietorship and a capital company or a simple association, or even a foundation.
Switzerland, in the heart of Europe, is politically and financially stable and has exemplary legal security. Geneva, as an international financial center and the seat of the United Nations, is of incomparable interest for the creation of a commercial company, as well as the tax advantages and the network of specialists in every field.
