Open-a-Hotel-in-Switzerland.jpgBusinessmen who are interested in the accommodation industry in Switzerland can open a company here with activities in this field, as the country receives many local and foreign tourists, who are drawn to Swiss touristic locations. Switzerland is famous for its winter sport activities, but tourists are also interested in visiting mountain landscapes. Investors who want to open a hotel in Switzerland should obtain a set of business permits and licenses, on which our team of Swiss company formation representatives can provide assistance. At the same time, it is important to know that the incorporation process of the legal entity representing the accommodation unit follows the general registration rules applicable to any other type of company
 

Business permits in Switzerland 

 
When opening a hotel in Switzerland, the investor should obtain a number of permits, which will testify that the entire business activities of the accommodation unit respect the requirements of the local legislation. If the investor wants to build a new hotel in Switzerland, he or she will need a construction permit. In such case, the businessmen will need the following permits
 
construction permit – the document is issued by the Municipal Building Authority, which will require the plans of the building;
fire permit – the Fire Department will provide a fire approval, testifying the building does not present any fire hazards;
inspections of the Municipal Building Authority for excavations and scaffoldings;
approval for waste management and recycling, issued by the Department of waste and recycling; all businesses in Switzerland are required by law to collect the waste according to specific procedures;
obtain approval for electric supply, water supply and sewage system; 
sanitary approval. 
 
Our team of Swiss company incorporation consultants can help foreign businessmen to better understand this process. 

 

Key aspects of the hotel industry in Switzerland 

 
Hotels in Switzerland are categorized on a star point system (where 1 star is received by the accommodation units offering the minimum services required by the law, while 5 stars depict the hotels providing high-class accommodation services). 
 
At the level of 2015, the industry accounted for 92 hotels awarded with a 5 stars distinction. Most of the hotels in Switzerland have 3 stars (903 hotels in 2015).
