Swiss GmbH to AG Conversion

GmbH to AG conversion sorted

We take care of the whole process – from personal legal advice on the matter to the legal documents and coordination with authorities. Fast and for a transparent flat-fee.

Conversion process

The capital requirements for the AG must be met when converting a GmbH into an AG. A capital increase is therefore usually the first step. This involves increasing the share capital to at least CHF 100,000.

The process itself is similar to an incorporation: A notarized general meeting is required, new articles of association must be drawn up, and the board of directors must be (re-)appointed. In addition, an auditor is required to evaluate the financial situation of the company.
