An audit board and the associated regular annual audit is currently only prescribed for public limited companies. It is voluntary for all other corporate forms.
However, because of the new auditing law in effect since 1 January 2008, the audit is no longer tied to the corporate form, but dependent upon the economic significance of a company. For publicly held corporations and economically significant companies (i.e. a balance sheet total of 10 million CHF or turnover of 20 million CHF and average annual staff of 50), a regular audit is again prescribed, while the limited audit is required for small and medium-sized companies . For these companies, the possibility of opting out exists as well, i.e., general waiver of an audit, if it does not have more than 10 full-time employees.
