Financial statements

Gaapex certified accountants have expertise with the following accounting frameworks:

  • Swiss code of obligations: statutory accounting framework for Swiss companies. The financial statements prepared in accordance with the code of obligations have to be approved by the Board of directors and the shareholders. Based on the “principle of determination”, they also determine the taxable income of the company.
  • International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS): the IFRS accounting framework is mainly used by large companies and those listed on the stock market. Depending of your investors’ needs, the preparation of financial statements in accordance to IFRS might be required.
  • Swiss GAAP FER: accounting framework applied by Swiss medium-size companies as well as by companies listed in Switzerland, it provides a true and faire view of the financial positions of the company. Swiss GAAP FER is an interesting alternative to IFRS.
