  • Statute date
  • Names, domicile/residence of the shareholders and their nationalities
  • The amount of capital and the parent deposits of each shareholder
  • Names, places of residence of the Managing Directors and their nationalities

In some cantons of Switzerland, other factors of the LLC are registered, for example, the names and residences of authorized signatories as well as their nationality. By the entry in the commercial register, a legal fact is created in relation to these persons entitled to the subscription, so that these persons remain a part of the company until the complete change of the entry or its deletion. This situation stems from the fact that the registration has a positive publicity effect.
