What are the reasons for closing down your business?
There may be many reasons for closing your business. This choice is not to be taken lightly. The clients we work with have reasons that can be linked to the company’s results or related to personal choices. Here is a non-exhaustive list:
Sometimes the business does not work as well as expected. In such a situation you may find yourself with a lot of debt. If the burden of debt becomes unbearable, the best option for you may be to close your business.
Once you have liquidated your company, you will no longer feel committed to your suppliers, employees, creditors and customers. Moreover, in legal terms, you will no longer have to be accountable for the consequences of your former activities. To put it simply, closing your business means having more peace of mind.
How to close your business in Switzerland?
There is a procedure to follow between the decision to close your business and the deregistration of the company. In particular, you must designate a liquidator, who may be a certified accountant or an accounting firm such as SAFE.
Our advisors can guide you through all the stages of the liquidation of the company. They proceed in a different way depending on whether or not debts remain.
Liquidation in a non-bankruptcy situation
We will analyse the financial situation of your company and, together, we will determine the best solution for moving forward. If your business is not bankrupt, i.e. you are not in debt as defined by Swiss standards, SAFE will proceed with an ordinary liquidation, which does not involve the necessity of communicating with creditors.
Liquidation in a bankruptcy situation
In the case of bankruptcy, we will complete the formalities vis-à-vis the Office Cantonal des poursuites et des faillites. If necessary, we can carry out certain delicate tasks such as informing your creditors about the company's situation in the Feuille officielle suisse du commerce (FOSC) so that they can claim their rights.
