Registering a Swiss catering company follows the same steps as registering any other type of company and also requires similar, or the same, documentation.
These steps include registering the business in Switzerland
with the Commercial Registry and opening a corporate Swiss bank account to deposit capital if required.
In some cases depending on the chosen business structure by the investors, there will be capital deposit requirements. This could mean that there is a minimum amount of required funds that must be deposited into a Swiss bank account before business operations can begin.
In the earlier stages of incorporation, a Swiss public notary(full list of en speaking Swiss public Notary
) will be required to sit in a business meeting with company founders or investors and draft up statutory documents. These documents will state which business formation the company is to operate as, which, for catering companies, is normally a limited liability company. Following this, investors will then be required to draft articles of association and a memorandum, which will be required to register the company.
