General information on Switzerland

Ideally located at the center of Europe, Switzerland is an internationally renowned financial center. Switzerland is a confederation with each canton (26) managed autonomously.

The current distribution of sectors between the Confederation and the cantons is laid out in the constitution fédérale, which specifies the limits of their respective governance. Due to their attractive tax system, Swiss companies are often used and are also a symbol of prestige.

We register two types of company: the Société Anonyme [public company] (S.A.) and the Société à Responsabilité Limitée [Limited Liability Company] (S.A.R.L.). Company registration in Switzerland can be processed in about 10 days.
