Opening a corporate bank account in Switzerland is necessary to set up a company here. As a matter of fact, the Swiss bank account opening process must be completed prior to the incorporation of the company with the Trade Register. A bank statement indicating the deposit of the share capital is needed to be filed alongside the company’s statutory documents. The most important part of the process is to choose the bank who will support your business strategy and the region you are targeting.

Advantages of opening a bank account in Switzerland
+The main benefits of Swiss bank accounts are the low level of the financial risk and the high level of privacy.
+Swiss law prevents the bank from disclosing any information regarding an account (even its existence) without the depositor's permission, except in cases where severe criminal activity is suspected.
+The fact that Switzerland has stayed politically stable and historically neutral makes it an ideal place for private banks, family offices, funds and other financial structures.
+The Swiss Banking System is the most secure in the world. In case of the implausible event of a collapse of the banking system the holders’ funds are backed in full by the Swiss Bankers Association depositors agreement.
