As part of our Swiss company formation and administration services at CO-Handelszentrum GmbH, we also provide a range of professional Swiss fiduciary services.
This Swiss fiduciary service includes subscribing for and registering shares in our name as nominee shareholders of your Swiss business. This is used both to avoid the need of the founding shareholders to travel to Switzerland to attend the notary meeting and for enhanced confidentiality, as only the founding shareholders are recorded in the commercial registry.
This Swiss company fiduciary service is also used to continue to hold registered shares on behalf of clients in a nominee capacity to maintain confidentiality. This also enables a more confidential system for subsequent transfer of shares between shareholders.
We are also able to act as nominee founder shareholders for incorporations involving the use of bearer shares. The bearer shares can be kept by us in safe custody with a Swiss bank for the account of the ultimate beneficial owner.
Swiss Resident Directors
In Switzerland, the law requires a Swiss company to have at least one Swiss Resident Director. Therefore, we will offer this fiduciary service by providing one of our senior executives as a nominee to undertake this role on behalf of you.
We understand how important safety and security is within a business, especially when you are in a foreign country. So, we offer the Swiss company fiduciary service of arranging high security Swiss safe deposit boxes with Swiss banks for all your important, high value documents.
