Before the foundation
For the establishment of a limited liability company with money as a deposit, the money must be paid before the establishment on a blocked account with a bank or savings bank on behalf of the company to be founded. The company name on the deposit confirmation must be absolutely identical to the company name at the foundation. Before you open a blocked account, there are some points to consider when choosing the company name.
How do I choose the company name?
A company name must not cause any illusions, must be true and must not violate the public interest. Likewise, it is not allowed to choose the company name from just one descriptive word that characterizes the business. The "Inkasso GmbH" would therefore be inadmissible, the "Kocher Inkasso GmbH" accordingly correct. Fantasy names are fine if the legal form is included in the company name, e.g. Fast snail GmbH. If a family name is integrated in the company name in a GmbH, it must also have a direct relationship to the company. This name can be kept even if the person should leave the company. Even if you want to make a regional statement in the name of your company, there are some limitations. So you can only make a regional designation that is directly related to your company. Further instructions and instructions regarding the company name can be obtained from us on request.
Our service
Based on the information provided by you, we will create the following individual documents for you: certificate, standard articles of incorporation, commercial register application, share register, Lex Friedrich & Stampa statement, powers of attorney with subscription certificate. Once we have received from you the capital payment confirmation and for each founder the power of attorney with certified signature and passport copy, our notary will carry out the certification of the founding. In the following we will provide you with all documents for registration. Not included in the price of CHF 499.- is the consultation and constitution of the purpose of the company, the name of the company or other legal or tax consultancy. Third party costs for signatures and registration in the commercial register of approx. CHF 700.- to 900.- are to be paid by yourself.
For which cantons can I found a GmbH here?
The companies founded by digitalCounsels can be registered in all german speaking cantons in the commercial register.
Founding process
Our digital platform will guide you step by step through the founding process. Throughout the process a founding expert is assigned to you, who you can write to at any time in your account.
Blocked account
Upon establishment, a blocked account must be opened with a Swiss bank or savings bank. This is a bank account on which the capital of the resulting company is deposited until it is entered in the commercial register. A capital deposit receipt will be issued and the money will remain in the blocked account until the company's founding has been published in the Commercial Register. For the opening of a blocked account at a bank, the person who has signed the application must obtain a certified copy of the identity card or signature. Allow plenty of time, opening a blocked account can take a few days. After the publication of the company founding in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce, the money is transferred to the business account of the company and the blocked account is dissolved. The transfer will be made at the earliest on the first working day following publication in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce. The payment of the capital by the bank takes place on presentation of an extract of the commercial register in the original or in a certified copy, from which the registration of the enterprise emerges.
