Sigtax (SIG Fiduciaire) allows you to choose from a wide range of possibilities that are often focused on a preliminary and fundamental question that most entrepreneurs interested incorporating in Switzerland should ask themselves. After analyzing the map of Europe and if necessary the world, you can easily realize that Switzerland represents a unique case in the world, where the efficiency of services, the proximity between important locations, the infrastructure, the quality of life and the favorable tax system are all part of what makes Switzerland the ideal location for all kinds of business activities.
One of the possibilities is to set up a company and have a residence in Switzerland in order to carry out a profitable business. Another option is to transfer a part of your business activities through a Swiss-based company with securities and real estate, bank accounts, and more, both in Switzerland and abroad.
With an extensive experience working with clients from several industries and a wide network of professionals from various fields, Sigtax is the best option to incorporate in Switzerland and for other related services to optimize your business activity.
Company formation in Switzerland
Swiss companies can be set up to conduct trading, real estate investment, to be used as holding companies, for management and advisory services, financial and commercial transactions and all sorts of other activities under Swiss law. Statutes define in detail the business purpose, the social capital and the ways in which the company carries out its activity. It’s worth mentioning that for corporations, most members of the Administrative Council must be Swiss resident. Alternatively, European citizens with stable residence in Switzerland are allowed.
For this reason, foreign clients generally entrust Sigtax with the task of representing them on the board of directors. As for the GmbH, it’s enough for one of the directors to be resident in Switzerland, even as a foreign citizen. Sigtax provides customer care even in this regard by finding the appropriate person to manage the company, guaranteeing the actual owner of the company control.
