The costs of registering with the Trade Register

The costs of registering with the trade register very much depend on the legal structure chosen.

Below are the costs to be considered (approximate amounts):

Sole proprietorship CHF 120 (basic fee)
Joint partnership/General partnership CHF 240 (basic fee)
Limited company/Limited liability company (SARL)* CHF 600 (basic fee)
Cooperative company/Association CHF 400 (basic fee)
Signing authority CHF 30 (per registration)
Registration of a position CHF 20 (per registration)
Preparation of a request for registration up to CHF 100
Preparation/authentication of proof of registration up to CHF 120
Legal information/Assessment of documentary evidence between CHF 100 and CHF 250 per hour

* When the share capital, company capital or endowment capital of legal entities exceeds CHF 200,000, the basic fee is increased by 0.2% of the tranche of capital above that amount; however, this may not be more than CHF 10,000
