In order to establish a company in Zurich, there are a few easy steps to be followed:
- Choice of the company name
It has to be unique.
- Document preparation for registering in the commercial register
To prepare all the documents correctly it is advisable to seek assistance from the bank or a lawyer. If the person establishing the business prefers to prepare all the documents by him/herself, they must be inspected by the Commercial Registry Office afterwards, which will cost around CHF200-300 and take around a week to be done. After the documents are checked and approved, they have to be signed in front of a notary, and the capital has to be deposited in the bank. The receipt can then be used as a proof that the capital was paid. After these procedures are completed, it will take a maximum of a week for the Commercial Registry Office to consider the documents and issue a registration certificate.
