Mutation of persons
Personal mutations are necessary if, for example, someone wants to join the management or the board of directors as a new member, as this requires an entry in the commercial register. Changes in marital status or place of residence also require a mutation, as Art. 933, para. 1 CO stipulates that the commercial register data must be updated.
We will be happy to assist you with a possible personal mutation. The following points must be observed:
- Newly registered persons must have their signature certified at the municipality or by a notary in Switzerland.
- In the case of a person resident abroad, the certification can also be carried out by the authorities there. In this case, however, an apostille is also required so that the certification can be recognised in Switzerland.
Furthermore, it is also important to note:
- At least one person with individual signature of the highest administrative body or two persons with collective signature of two must be resident in Switzerland.
We would be happy to assist you in keeping your commercial register data up to date.

The type of change requested, the time it takes to obtain all the necessary signatures and the workload of the commercial register office all play a role.

Orders with certification take about three weeks to be completed.
