Having chosen the canton where the future holding company will be settled, investors have to arrange for the following steps:
- Check if the name of the holding company is unique
- Provide a verified document where the names of the Board of Directors are listed
- Set a registered office for the holding company
- Be prepared to pay filing fees for company formation and registration
The completion of the abovementioned steps leads to registration in the Swiss Commercial Register. After that the company should be listed for VAT.
