The creation of a subsidiary is like the establishment of any other company under Swiss law. It requires capital, registration in the Companies Registry and the signing of an incorporation deed before a notary. Unlike a branch office, a subsidiary is completely separate from the parent company that holds all or nearly all of the subsidiary’s stock.

What advantages does a subsidiary have?

  • Same benefits as other Swiss companies
  • The subsidiary will have bank account
  • Easy invoicing: the billing between the parent company and its subsidiary is highly adaptable
  • Tax: the subsidiary is taxed in Switzerland and files its own tax returns
  • Reputation: the subsidiary represents the parent company in Switzerland
