Set up a Swiss Company

Switzerland is an international trade and finance center and one of the freest economies worldwide, with liberal market policies and a low tax regime along with a long tradition of political, economic and financial stability.

Due to its limited area, its lack of natural resources and relatively low population, its economic policy is oriented towards foreign free trade, with low import duties and just a few import quotas, most aimed at the agricultural sector. In addition to having access to a market of 500 million people due to its free trade agreement with the European Union, providing duty-free trade and free movement of capital and labor.

A tier-1 developed infrastructure, an efficient capital market and strong financial system, currency stability, a liberal labor market, an efficient and reliable regulatory environment, a high-skilled and highly productive workforce, have made Switzerland the chosen location for international large firms and SMEs to establish their headquarters in Europe.

Switzerland also has one of the lowest value-added tax rates (8%) and companies trading within the country can get corporate effective tax rates as low as 12.5%, in addition to its free zones and several tax incentives, grants and tax rebates at the canton and communal levels for companies engaging in new technologies, research and development and high-value manufacturing.

Switzerland is also one of the largest financial centers worldwide. Swiss banks offer top-notch corporate banking facilities and a broad range of banking services, investment funds, and insurance services, among others. The Swiss Franc is seen as a safe-haven against currency fluctuations and instability.

All in all, Switzerland is an excellent jurisdiction for global parent companies, IP holding, banking, international trading, and European headquarters.
