Do you have a social business idea that you have been working on for some time? Are you wondering which legal form is best suited to meet your needs in Switzerland and what is the tax treatment of social businesses? A review of the legal, tax and governance issues essential to building a strong social business will be discussed at this workshop.
This workshop was offered by Julie Wynne, Giving Women member and attorney at law and partner at Froriep: “The Legal Framework for Social Enterprise in Switzerland” in which we explored the best legal forms for social businesses in Switzerland.
We also welcomed Jonathan Normand, B Lab Europe’s Country partner for Switzerland. Jonathan shared his insights into the BCorp movement and explained which social businesses are eligible and how to apply. This gave participants a full picture of the framework for businesses with a social and environmental purpose.
