Advantages of a trading company in Switzerland

Switzerland is a globally recognized trade and finance center. Establishing a trading company in Switzerland brings numerous advantages for companies looking to realize their global ambitions.

Stable political and economic environment

Switzerland is known for its political and economic stability. It offers a secure environment for companies, characterized by robust legal structures, a strong currency and low inflation.

This makes Switzerland an attractive location for trading companies that rely on a stable business environment.

Excellent infrastructure

Switzerland’s infrastructure is first-class, both in terms of physical infrastructure (transport, logistics, etc.) and digital infrastructure (internet access, data security, etc.).

This state-of-the-art infrastructure enables trading companies to operate efficiently and effectively while maintaining a high standard of service.

Qualified workforce potential

Switzerland is home to a highly skilled and multilingual workforce. The quality of education and multilingualism of the workforce are invaluable to trading companies, as it results in a high level of expertise and the ability to communicate with international partners and customers.

Strong regulatory framework

Switzerland has a strong regulatory framework that ensures consumer protection and the integrity of the financial market.

These robust laws and regulations provide a shield against fraud and abuse and help maintain Switzerland’s reputation.

Central geographical location

Switzerland is positioned in the heart of Europe, making it an ideal location for accessing key markets. It offers easy travel and excellent connections to other major financial and commercial centers worldwide.

Tax benefits

Switzerland has a competitive tax structure that is attractive to companies. The canton of Zug, for example, is known for its low corporate taxes, and therefore attracts many international trading companies.

Financial aspects of establishing a trading company

There are several financial aspects to consider when establishing a trading company in Switzerland.

This section is designed to give you an overview of the key financial aspects you should keep in mind while planning to start your business.

Start-up capital

One of the first things you should consider when starting your business are the start-up and minimum capital requirements. These can vary greatly depending on the type of trading business and its regulatory requirements.

It is important to clearly understand how much capital you will need to start and operate your business before you begin the startup process.

Operating costs

Operating costs are another important financial consideration. These include ongoing costs such as rent, salaries, insurance, technology, and compliance costs. Calculating these costs in advance and including them in your business and financial plan is important.

Financing options

There are various ways to finance the establishment and operation of your trading company. These include equity, debt, and various forms of investor financing.


Switzerland has an attractive tax structure for businesses, but it is important to have a clear understanding of your company’s tax obligations. This includes corporate tax and VAT, and may also include taxes on dividends and capital gains.

Compliance costs

Regulatory and legal compliance can be costly, especially in a highly regulated sector such as retail. This includes the cost of compliance, paying compliance specialists, and the cost of audits and reports.

Liquidity Management

For trading companies, effective liquidity management is crucial. You must always have sufficient cash to meet your business obligations and respond to market changes.

Nexova AG has the necessary expertise and experience to support you in making these important decisions and help you build a sound financial base for your company.
