Conclusion of partner contracts

As soon as you have concluded the necessary contracts with our partners, they will inform us directly. The discount occurs only when the selected partners inform STARTUPS.CH that one or more valid contracts have been concluded with the partner company.

Terms and conditions

The reductions of the full compensatory payments will come into force if the chosen partner informs STARTUPS.CH that a or several contracts have been concluded within 30 days since the registration of the company/sole proprietorship / general partnership in the registry of commerce. The customer must undertake all necessary actions in order that the contract(s) can be concluded within this period. If the partner does not inform STARTUPS.CH of a conclusion of the contract or informs STARTUPS.CH that no contract(s) has / have been concluded,the customer must pay the total compensation (compensation without partner contributions). STARTUPS.CH will send an invoice for this, payable within 10 days since date of invoice. After having paid the invoice, the customer has one year (from the moment of registration in the registry of commerce) to conclude a contract(s) with the chosen partners. After having submitted the necessary proof to STARTUPS.CH, the customer will receive a credit note at STARTUPS.CH. The option to close a contract with a partner within a year from the moment of registration in the registry of commercer, does not relieve the customer from theduty of paying the compensation within 10 days. The possibility to conclude a contract(s) within a year from the moment of registration in the registry of commerce does not discharge the customer from paying the post invoice within 10 days. If the customer withdraws from a partner contract, does not fulfil the terms of the contract, or should any other reason arise that entitles the partner not to pay their share toward the incorporation costs or, as the case may be, demand repayment, the customer owes this amount to STARTUPS.CH. The partner has the right to refuse a contract without any reason

Start a business and register it in the commercial register

You want to start a business and don't know whether you should register it in the commercial register or not? Registration in the commercial register is only mandatory for sole proprietorships from an annual turnover of CHF 100,000. However, you can also register earlier. We recommend that you enter your business in the commercial register, especially if you plan to acquire new clients in the future. By being entered in the company index, young and unknown companies in particular can build trust.

The appropriate legal form for your business

Every person who wants to found or restructure a company must decide on a legal form. The three most popular legal forms in Switzerland for newly established businesses are the sole proprietorship, limited liability company (LLC) and public limited company (PLC). You can find out about other legal forms in Switzerland here.

Start a business: Deciding on a legal form

Depending on the purpose of your business and the activity you want to pursue, a different legal form is best suited.

If you start a business, run it as a one-man business and do not want to invest a high initial / share capital, the sole proprietorship is a good choice. The limited liability company, on the other hand, is particularly suitable for small and medium-sized companies, as only the business assets are liable and several people can be involved. The public limited company is mainly suitable for larger and profit-oriented companies.

If you are unsure which legal form is right for your business, you can obtain further information or speak to one of our lawyers.
