GmbH to AG conversion process

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.
