Changes in the statutory auditors
The size and the articles of association of a company determine whether a statutory auditor is necessary and whether an audit must be carried out accordingly. However, by opting in, it is always possible to register an auditor even without an obligation.
If you wish to carry out an audit voluntarily, the first step is to find a statutory auditor, who will then be elected by the highest body in your company. We will be happy to prepare all the necessary documents, including the declaration of acceptance for the new auditors. Important: Even if you are not required to have an audit, the elected auditor must have the appropriate license.
If you already have a statutory auditor and want to replace him, then the process is simple. The new auditors are newly elected by the highest body of your company. At the same time, the existing auditors are replaced. Here, too, it is important to note that the new auditors must be licensed. We will be happy to support you in this change.
If you are no longer required to have an audit, but still have a statutory auditor and do not wish to have an audit in the future, then you can opt out.
In the context of an opting-out, the statutory auditor is voted out by the highest body of the company. This is only possible if your company is no longer subject to mandatory auditing. If your articles of association stipulate that an auditor must be registered, the articles of association must also be amended. This again requires a notarisation. A signed copy of the balance sheets and profit and loss accounts for the last two completed financial years must in any case be enclosed with the opting-out documents. Only then can the statutory auditor be removed from the commercial register entry.
New registration of a subsidiary (CH/abroad)
Subsidiary with headquarters in Switzerland
When a subsidiary is newly registered in Switzerland, a number of documents must be submitted. These differ depending on whether the subsidiary is registered in the same canton as the headquarters or outside of it. If the subsidiary is located in another canton, a notarisation of the signature of the person signing the application must also be submitted. A certification must also be obtained if a person is to be authorised to sign only for the subsidiary.
Subsidiary with headquarters abroad
When newly registering a subsidiary with its headquarters abroad, several important points must be taken into account. Firstly, the subsidiary must be represented by at least one person in Switzerland with authority to sign. In addition to the registration form and the certified signature of the new person being registered, it is also necessary to submit a certified copy of the articles of association and the extract from the commercial register where the headquarters is located. If the certification is made abroad, it must also be provided with an apostille.
Increase of capital
In order for us to determine the best course of action for your capital increase, we recommend that you contact us in advance by telephone. You can reach us during normal office hours at 041 511 07 42. Of course, this consultation is free of charge. Normally, we carry out capital increases by means of resolutions passed by the general meeting of shareholders, as well as by the board of directors or the management. Both resolutions must be notarised. The notarial fees for both certifications as well as the expenses for the preparation of the documents are fully included in the price. It should be noted that the shareholders or partners must be present at the notarisation. The shareholders and partners may be represented by other shareholders or partners by means of powers of attorney, provided this is permitted by the articles of association.
Registration of an additional company address
In addition to the domicile address, a company registered in the trade register can also have other addresses registered at which it can be reached by post. This is particularly useful if you want to register a branch that is located outside the registered domicile address. In order for us to be able to prepare the necessary documents for you, we usually only need an application signed by the supreme authority of your company. We will be happy to assist you in this process.
Registration of general partnerships
The registration of a general partnership is comparable to the registration of a sole proprietorship. Unlike a sole proprietorship, a general partnership must state when it is to commence its business activities. In addition, all partners to be registered must have their signatures notarised.

Orders with certification take about three weeks to be completed.
