Anyone who wishes to purchase a Swiss shelf company will gain the benefits below:
- The transaction and name change can be completed in 1 – 2 days
- As the company is already registered, it ensures longevity and stability as well as offers a better opportunity for investors and clients
- Investors will have the power to entirely change business operations and trading names to better suit their business plans
There are a number of Swiss shelf company types, all of which have slightly different characteristics, and can be purchased in Switzerland, though it is recommended that investors understand that most Swiss shelf companies for sale will be limited liability companies, which are one of the more popular business entities in Switzerland.
It is vital for a prospective buyer to do their research and determine that the shelf company they wish to purchase is being sold in good faith, and does not come with hidden liabilities. We recommend performing a company due diligence course of action.
During the purchase and change of ownership and transfer of shares, the buyer is required to provide amended statutory documents for the legal entity.
A number of details and operations can be changed once a business is purchased, these can include; its name, address, general board and business objectives. All of these changes must be recorded and registered with the Commercial Register of Switzerland
