Starting A Start-Up In 2022
15 January 2022
Founding a startup in 2022 is nowhere easier than in Switzerland. We can claim this with a clear conscience, as we bundle the resources of technologies and experts that relieve founders of any and all bureaucratic hurdles.
Were you aware: These hurdles are the reason why many creative people don't pursue their business idea and the dream of entrepreneurship remains a dream. These include the fear of the many administrative tasks that already start in the founding process - from the choice of the legal form to the registration of the trade -, then there are documents and document management, tax registrations and duties that cause uncertainty.
At the same time, we can tell you that hardly any founder knows from the beginning how many reserves he or she should form, or which receipts have to be recorded and how.
What Are The Challenges Of Founding A Start-Up?
Start-ups often thrive on a disruptive, creative or innovative idea. At the same time, many start-ups are solo projects or consist of only a small team of two or three people. Especially in the early days, building up your own company requires full commitment. Regular working hours are almost unthinkable.
However, this is not the problem for most founders. What often clouds the joy of founding a company, however, are the bureaucratic and legal hurdles. The founding process alone is complicated and requires perseverance as well as professional knowledge. Numerous decisions have to be made and documents submitted.
Once everyday life settles in at the start-up, the bureaucracy is far from over. Accounting obligations, tax returns, VAT, payroll accounting or communication with the relevant authorities are just some of the issues. All of this takes time and causes frustration.
These are some of the reasons why many people shy away from starting a business. A lack of consulting services is also repeatedly cited as a reason for not taking the step into self-employment. So these are the biggest hurdles for a start-up:
- Complicated founding process
- Lack of advisory options
- High bureaucratic workload in everyday life
Founding A Start-Up In 2022 - This Is The Process
The first step is to choose the best legal form. You can learn more about this in the free Numarics Academy. This has a big impact on your later business operations. Accordingly, the choice between sole proprietorship, the Swiss GmbH or AG or another legal form is important.
After that, the actual formation of your startup begins. It requires the creation of documents and registrations. These include, for example, the commercial register application and public deeds.
The next step is to open the capital contribution account. There, the business capital is paid in by all founders, if this is stipulated for the foundation of the chosen company form. This is the case, for example, with an AG or GmbH. The Swiss bank then confirms the opening and deposit. This is done within four to seven working days.
With the deposit confirmation, it is then possible to carry out the notarization of the incorporation documents. The documents are subsequently sent to the Commercial Registry Office. There, a commercial register entry is created. This is the actual moment of incorporation.
Even before the actual establishment of your company, you can take advantage of the services of Numarics. We advise founders on the possibilities and on choosing the right legal form.
