What do I have to consider when founding a public limited coporation?
Establish your own public limited coporation in Switzerland
A minimum share capital of CHF 100,000 is required for the formation of a public limited coporation, of which at least CHF 50,000 must be paid in cash. Info:The founder of an public limited coporation or limited liability company cannot draw pension fund money because he is employed in his own company on the basis of an employment contract. For the purposes of OASI law, he is therefore not considered to be self-employed.
Number of persons
A public limited coporation by shares requires at least one shareholder and one director, which may be the same person. It should be noted that a director with signatory powers must be resident in Switzerland.
Auditing is mandatory for 10 or more employees. According to Art. 727 OR, a public limited coporation is subject to ordinary audit if it exceeds two of the following thresholds in two consecutive financial years: Balance sheet total: CHF 20 million - Turnover: CHF 40 million - Full-time equivalents: 250.
Value added tax liability
Your public limited coporation is subject to value added tax (VAT) only from a turnover of CHF 100,000. However, it is also possible to voluntarily apply VAT at a lower turnover.
