A basic overview of the general partnership will show that legal entity itself, the company, has no liability and all liability rests on the founders themselves. This means that general partnership in Switzerland is a good option for investors who wish to open
a small business as it isn't given its own legal personality.
Investors or business developers who are planning on, or have developed a company in Switzerland will be required to finalise the business or general partnership with documentation on its business name, activities and also register it to the Swiss Commercial Register. This must be done in the form of a signed and notarised contract to ensure validity.
Finalising the business's registration will need the founders of the business to sign a registration request, which is one of the final steps to confirming that the business is a general partnership and verifies that the two company founders are now partners.
