There is no certificate of good standing provided by the Swiss registries. We can supply a certified extract of the Commercial Register from the Federal Commercial Registry in Switzerland certifying the current company details.

The certificate is provided from the Federal Commercial Registry with an official stamp, seal and with the signature of an authorised officer.

In some Cantons we can provide an extract from the commercial register in German with the current company details.
