Welcome to the fourth of our 5-part series on why you should choose Switzerland as a business location for your scale-up. In partnership with Switzerland Global Enterprise.
Have you ever wondered how you can benefit from Switzerland as your HQ and how you can use the country as a test market?
When it comes to maximizing innovativeness or making processes and structures more cost-efficient, Switzerland offers many advantages as a headquarters or location for central functions. The country is home to a very high number of international and European Headquarters of large multinational companies. Many of them operate central management and operational functions such as finance, marketing or payroll, research and development, IP management, or global supply chain management from here. Your scale-up can benefit from these structures, too.
Strategic advantages and test market
Thanks to its strategic location between the Asian, European, and US time zones, Switzerland’s excellent infrastructure and its solutions for managing revenues and risks have made it a leading destination for multinational companies looking to set up supply chain operations.
Its central location and various trade agreements make it easy for companies to tap into the European market, which is made up of almost 500 million consumers. A business-friendly environment and competitive corporate and personal tax rates provide further advantages for HQs.
