The aim is to create streamlining procedures, simplicity in authorisations, speed in decisions and certainty of rules.

Companies and individuals can quickly and easily start a new business. The legal constitution of a company requires in most cases only two to four weeks and generally costs between 2,000 and 8,000 francs.
