EasyGov: The online portal for businesses

The one-stop EasyGov portal facilitates and centralizes administrative procedures for Swiss businesses.

Want to start an SME? Go to EasyGov, the online portal for Swiss businesses. Replacing the StartBiz platform, this one-stop online portal facilitates, accelerates and optimizes those administrative procedures which are mandatory for companies.

New companies:

  • Registering for old-age and survivors’ insurance
  • Registering for value added tax
  • Registering for accident insurance (private and official providers)
  • Registering in the commercial register

Existing companies:

Making modifications to commercial register entries (e.g. personnel changes or amendments to the articles of association).

Debt enforcement and requests for extracts from the debt enforcement register

for companies, associations, foundations, cooperatives and private individuals

Loan guarantees for SMEs

The government-accredited loan guarantee cooperatives facilitate access to bank loans for SMEs. Contact with the competent loan guarantee organisation can be initiated via EasyGov.

Suva salary declarations

Companies which do not have their own payroll software can enter their salary data directly in EasyGov and then send it to Suva.

Authorisation database
