The process to establish a pharmaceutical company is the same as building any other company type. This means foreign investors are required to decide upon which type os Swiss business form is best suited to the new business. Following this, like any other business, it is required to be registered on the Swiss Trade Register and Swiss tax authorities.
A popular business configuration for pharmaceutical businesses is normally a private limited company, although a larger business is more inclined to develop a branch office to compliment it's parent business overseas. The Swiss registration process is simple, transparent and straightforward, which makes it simple to set up
a branch or private limited company. Additionally, Switzerland has a very benefice taxation structure.
