New company foundation portal Fasoon allows to set up a Swiss company within a very short time thanks to automated business processes and at a very affordable price due to various partnerships with insurers, banks, telecom, and accounting providers. In most cases, a new AG / GmbH formation is free of charge.

Swiss Francs. The only other costs are government fee for entry into Commercial Register (ca. 700-900 CHF) and bank fee for capital deposit account (ca. 200 CHF).
