Similar to the limited liability company, the proprietors of a public limited company (AG) do not assume full liability. In addition, the AG has a very good public reputation.
The public limited company, or Ltd. (AG), is an important and popular legal structure in Switzerland. Foreign companies often use this legal form when establishing a subsidiary. A Ltd. (AG) is a corporation with a legal entity whose liabilities are covered exclusively by its own assets. The base capital, determined in advance, is divided into shares. The Ltd. (AG) is not only the ideal structure for large companies, it is also suitable for small and medium-sized companies. It is the most commonly used legal form for holding and financial companies.
