Can a gmbh/sarl be established in one canton, but operate in an other freely ?

Hi, I am trying to assess if it is possible to establish the residency of a company in one canton (say Zoug) but operates it from an other canton (say Geneva)

Will the cantonal rate be the one of Zoug or Geneva ?

Your company "seat" can be anywhere, you can have other offices anywhere. The company is taxed where it has it's seat. Hence why many businesses are based in Zug.

You even can have you company-seat in the Prinicipality of Liechtenstein and the operational offices inside Switzerland. What you need in case of both FL (Fürstentum Liechtenstein) and the Emirate of Zug, is a legal address there, and not just a POB. Many notaries and lawyers there have, at their entrance, dozens of companies indicated accordingly. One customer of us has a CH-6301 Zug address, another one a 6340 Baar address. All invoices are issued to the legal address, but sent elsewhere, in case of the 6340 chap to Wil/SG and in case of the 6301 one to a Hinwil address (his notary partner).

Btw. just compare Liechtenstein with the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey and you have it FL in fact IS a member of the EEA, and via its customs and currency and postal union with Switzerland is linked up with the EU etc . FL far earlier than CH became a full member of the UN .

One point however should be considered. While people in the Cantonal administration of Zug of course are able to read French, and those in the Cantonal administration of Geneva German, it is to be made clear that official language in the Canton of Zug is German (only) and official language in the Republic of Geneva is French (only), which means that their forms are in just the one official language. And that the taxes are a Cantonal matter. Which roughly means that a Geneva office of a company with its legal base in Zug should have some personnel acceptably fluent in French and Standard-German, because all the printed info from Zug will be in German only.
