Official Company Record document, how to find it?

I need official documents related to the registry of two companies based in St.Gallen.

I've found what I needed online in the St Gallen Commercial register website but they state the info is not official. I need official documents for legal matters. Does anyone have any idea of how to get them, considering I do not live in Switzerland?

Can anybody get those records without providing any reason?

This is what they state under the company information:
Quote:
The information above is given with no commitment and is in no way legally binding. Only the company record (extract) issued and certified by the competent Registery Office and the text published in the Swiss Commercial Gazette are binding. Remark: It's possible that some graphic elements (for ex. cancellations) aren't represented correctly by some browsers.

Go to/call the Commercial Register and ask for an official/certified excerpt.

You can order the documents online by filling out the form: http://www.afhn.sg.ch/home/handelsre...-formular.html
Or if you prefer you can have someone in Switzerland order them for you and have them couriered to Japan.

The commercial registry is open and anyone can inspect it without giving reasons.

Most likely you are only looking for the commercial registry extract. However, if also need further information on a Swiss company you can also request further documents such as their articles for incorporation, and so on. If you need professional assistance in this regard send me a PM.

Re: Official Company Record document, how to find it?

you can also do online (but form is only in German)

http://www.afhn.sg.ch/home/handelsre...-formular.html

In first box, put
Handelsregisterauszug für "full company name of your interest"

Check boxes "Beglaubigung" and "Apostille" (this certifies signatures, makes official)

In next box where says "Apostle für folgendes Land", put country name of where you will use with authorities requiring official

Rest of document is then rather clear, you need to put in your name address and contact info for invoice purposes

good luck!

Thank you so much for the detailed information. I am actually not in Japan at the moment and I can't choose my country among the given options so probably they won't send it here. I may have to find someone to take care of this procedure in Switzerland.
