As incorporation agents our experience with the Federal Commercial Registry in Switzerland means we can obtain copies of company documents from the registry. We are able to conduct a company name search and obtain company search reports and copies of official documents.
A Swiss company report/company extract includes details of the company, confirms its existence and lists company information.
A Swiss company search report includes:
The original shareholders of the company are included in the constitution of the company, the company does not need to register any change to shareholders at the Registry.
The search report will be ordered from Federal Commercial Registry and delivered by email in 3 - 5 days.
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.
If there is no mention of liquidation, bankruptcy, loss of domicile or lack of directors of company or auditors the company is Good Standing.
We cannot provide an original copy of the Certificate of Incorporation for a registered company in Switzerland, under the Swiss Companies Act.
Upon incorporation director and shareholder registers must be filed at the Commercial Registry, but are not available for public inspection. Furthermore, these registers do not have to be kept up to date with any subsequent changes to company directors or registers.
Generally, companies incorporated in Switzerland are not required to file annual financial statements. The exception to this is for certain types of company, such as banks, finance institutions, publicly traded companies. For these companies the financial statements must be filed within six months following the end of the reporting period.
