Power of Attorney on Incorporation of GmbH
Upon incorporation in Switzerland of a limited liability company (Gesellschaft mit beschränkter Haftung or GmbH), the founder of the company must subscribe for quotas, participate in the founders’ meeting, and interact with the commercial register for the purposes of registering the newly established company.
This Power of Attorney allows the founder (referred to as the Principal) to grant power of attorney to one or more individuals to act as proxy for the purpose of the incorporation. This is typically required if, for example, the founder is an individual or entity located outside Switzerland or the founder is otherwise unable to participate in the incorporation process.
The proxy is authorized:
- to subscribe for a defined number of quotas in the Company, in the name of/for the account of the Principal;
- to represent the Principal at the founders‘ meeting; and
- to interact with the commercial register on behalf of the Principal.
Documents are required to be provided in the official language of the relevant commercial registry. These templates are provided in German with English translation.
The Principal may be a natural person or a legal entity. The proxy must be an individual, but may represent a legal entity.
