What is a director’s service?

The different aspects

A company domiciled in Switzerland (GmbH or AG) is legally required to have at least one representative domiciled in Switzerland. We can provide this service with one of our qualified Nexova employees, who acts on behalf of your company while you retain sole decision-making authority. Your decisions will be executed by the representative in Switzerland on behalf of your company.

What does a director’s service consist of?

The core responsibilities

Legal representation

If no managing director of your company is a resident of Switzerland, we will provide you with a local representative who is registered in the commercial register as a managing director of your company and legally assumes this role.

Decision-making and power to act

The representative does not have any decision-making power or authority over your company. Decisions can only be made by you, and the representative then enacts them on your behalf.

Strategic support

In addition to legal representation, we can also guide you on strategic, operational, and administrative decisions, and therefore contribute to the long-term success of your company.

Professional advice

Our experts are actively available to give you advice. We place great importance on building a personal and lasting relationship.

Prevention of risks

It is our task to protect your interests and comply with all legal requirements. We help you to identify potential risks early and react accordingly

Careful handling

When accepting a mandate as a member of the Board of Directors, confidentiality and cooperation with shareholders are our top priorities.

I have been a Nexova customer for some time now and so far I am very satisfied! Thanks to the digital working methods and high responsiveness of the client managers, little time is lost in the daily process in particular. The prices are also very fair. Nexova handles the annual financial statements for me, including the tax balance sheet. The processes are standardized, which is a great advantage for audits (AHV and taxes). The two founders are two young, innovative guys and very serious.

When I founded my company a year ago, I needed a reliable fiduciary partner. In addition to pure accounting, Nexova also offers me very good advice on all aspects of labor law. Thanks to the E-Post solution, I no longer even have to worry about my company mail and can focus purely on my service activities. My contacts at Nexova are always very friendly and pleasant to deal with. The complete package is simply TOP and I can only recommend Nexova!

We are very satisfied with Nexova as our trustee. Thanks to the Teams group chat, I can always count on very fast response times (of a few minutes). The Teams Chat group is great. With our old trustee, we had to write mails and always had to wait a long time for an answer and on top of that we were charged for every little question. Fortunately, this is not the case with Nexova.

Nexova solved my problem with a non-paying tenant quickly and efficiently. I was simply overwhelmed with the situation and glad for the competent legal advice. Nexova handled everything from the reminder with threat of termination, to representation in court, to the police eviction quickly, efficiently and also inexpensively. Many thanks for the valuable help.
