For a GmbH to be converted into an AG, the capital requirements for the AG in particular must be met. Therefore, a capital increase is usually necessary as a first step.
This involves increasing the company’s share capital to at least CHF 100,000. In a second step after the capital increase, the legal form is effectively changed.
The process is similar to that for an incorporation, i.e., 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, confirmation from an auditor is required with regard to the financial situation of the company.
Legal expert advice to guide you through the process from beginning to end. This typically requires 1-2 hours of personal advice; 3 hours are included in our flat-fee packages. For complex cases, we indicate that more work may be needed as soon as possible.
