What is domiciliation ?

What is domiciliation? – Are you thinking of creating your company? Are you self-employed? You have questions about the establishment of your company’s headquarters but you don’t know what it is, what is possible and how to go about it?

Follow us, we explain everything in this article!


What is domiciliation? Definition 

To begin with, here is the proper definition of the word domiciliation: “Choice, by a person, of the place of the seat of his trade or a company. (Larousse)

In other words, we could popularize this definition by saying that it is the address of a company, the place where the latter will be contacted, will receive its mail and a central point of the administrative management. 

As written in one of our other articles, “The head office is therefore your primary address, but this does not mean that you are obliged to work from this place”.

Advantages of company domiciliation

For young companies, startups, freelancers, holdings or branches, domiciliation offers considerable advantages.

First of all, if you are self-employed, your mail does not arrive at your home, which allows you to separate the administration of your private life from the one of your professional activity.

Secondly, we obviously do not want it to happen, but if things get stuck at some point and legal steps have to be taken against your business, it is better to have the problem recognized elsewhere than at home and to guarantee a certain distance between yourself and the potential problems arising from your profession. 

A little extra not to be overlooked 

Being domiciled elsewhere than at home, whether at a fiduciary or at Coworking Neuchâtel for example, your customers will not find your private address when they search for your business on the internet. This can be crucial if your activity is not linked to your home or if you do not receive visitors at home for your business.

Canton of Neuchâtel

To begin with, it is important to understand that the canton of Neuchâtel values the creation, the establishment, the installation and also the domiciliation of companies.

To tell you the truth, the latter has even made a report (downloadable here) about the results of the consultation concerning their “strategy for the promotion of domiciliation”.

Having your official address in the canton of Neuchâtel is also an advantage in terms of taxation. We do not say it anymore, but the Canton of Neuchâtel is the canton with the lowest tax rate in French-speaking Switzerland, equal to 13.57%.
