The Company new entrys, company deletions and company mutations are all compared to the previous month greatly decreased. However, the comparison to the previous year reveals the stability of the Swiss corporate landscape.

In August 2022, 3,426 companies were newly registered. This is 19% down from the previous month, in which 4,220 companies were newly entered. However, a look at the previous year shows that the numbers are nevertheless stable and can be interpreted positively. Because in August 2021 there were 3,240 new listings recorded, down 6% from the current month.
