About the Commercial register of Zürich

Zürich Commercial Register is a public register that serves to identify companies (entities of any legal nature that are required to be registered) that carry out commercial activities in the canton of Zürich.

The information contained in the Zürich Commercial Register varies according to the legal form of the company, but generally includes the name or company name, the registered office, the corporate purpose, the management and control bodies, the share capital, the persons authorised to sign on behalf of the company, and certain other remarks.

All companies must be registered in the Commercial Register; however, for some legal forms, registration is only required under certain conditions (e.g., self-employed persons are only required to register if they have a turnover of more than CHF 100,000):
