All Swiss companies must be represented by at least one person who is a Swiss resident (article 718 Swiss Code of Obligations). Consequently, at least one member of the board of directors or a manager must meet this requirement. This criterion may pose a problem for foreign entrepreneurs. For this reason, our firm works with trusted, experienced people who meet the legal criteria for assuming the role of a nominee director, a Swiss director, or a Swiss manager.

The nominee director of a Swiss company, the Swiss director or the manager of a Swiss LLC deals with all stages in setting up your company in Switzerland. We accomplish the administrative formalities involved in setting up your company. When your company has been set up, we can deal with its administration by managing contacts with the many local bodies.

We take care of your registration and complete your VAT returns every quarter, respectively every semester according to the chosen method of settlement. There are two payment methods: VAT declaration according to the invoices issue date VAT declaration according to the payments date In these two cases it is a question of declaring the VAT invoiced to customers, respectively the VAT paid by the customers and to recover the input tax (VAT) invoiced by the suppliers, respectively the input tax paid to the suppliers. The accounts are to be drawn up each quarter. It is also possible to opt for payment of VAT at the "net tax debt rate". This is a method that does not recover the input tax.
