Switzerland is one of the largest financial centers where more than 40% of global capital is concentrated. Banking sphere is represented by a number of institutions which level of development encourages companies to open representative offices here. Traditional offshore zone in Switzerland does not exist. However, under certain conditions, you can count on significant preferences, particularly tax ones. The country has signed agreements with many countries on avoidance of double taxation.
Registration and maintenance of company in Switzerland is carried out in the framework of the current legislation. It provides the creation of companies of the following types:
The joint stock company (AG). The amount of authorized capital is determined by the amount of 100 000 Swiss francs. At least half of it must be paid at the time of the establishment of society. Such organizational and legal form is suitable for enterprises of large and medium business segments. In addition, AG is selected by entrepreneurs who seek to protect their assets. Legislation is loyal to the founders, protects their right for confidentiality - shareholders may act anonymously. The majority of the board of directors must be residents of the country. Since the offshore zone in Switzerland does not exist in the classical sense, entrepreneurs are not exempt from auditing, preparing and submitting the annual statements. AG may issue shares - nominative and bearer ones. The minimum composition is one shareholder (individual, legal entity, offshore company), director should be resident.
Limited Liability Company. This form of business is relevant for small and medium-sized sector. Registration of company in Switzerland assumes the formation of the AC in amount of 20 000 Swiss francs. There is no restrictions on the foreign ownership of the property in Switzerland. Minimum composition is two persons, one of whom (Director) is a resident of the state. The auditing is carried out yearly. Companies undertake to form and submit statements, to carry out the shareholders' meetings.
Branches of foreign companies. There is no requirements to AC. Minimum composition is one member of the board - a resident of Switzerland living permanently in the country. Auditing is not required if the company does not plan to work in the stock markets. It is necessary to keep records and submit tax declarations.
For the submission of documents to the authorized state bodies it is necessary to appoint a Swiss attorney. In future he will become director of the company. "Prifinance" will offer such a representative and perform all complex of works on creation of foreign representative office.
The next step is the formation of all necessary documentation, definition of profile and name of the company. At this time the bank account is opened which accepts the AC. It shall be paid at the rate of 50%, if the bank does not plan to make emission, at the rate of 100% if the bearer shares will be issued. Further, the constituent documents shall be certified by a notary, submitted to the Chamber of Commerce and then shall be entered in the register. Successful incorporation is accompanied by the opening of the current account.
