Switzerland offers the ultimate in scenery, security and serenity but dealing with the problems commonly faced by both Swiss nationals and expats can prove overwhelming, time-consuming and as hazardous as any alpine black run.

Time-challenged families looking for hassle-free administration may be interested in the services of Chronologica SA, a private administration management company based in Nyon, which has made huge progress since we wrote about it on our site 2 years ago.

With Chronologica’s services the dream of a life with no paperwork, no invoices to manage, no frustrating liaisons with tradesman and more time for you becomes a reality. Managing director Lizzie Gent told knowitall.ch, “We’re offering a unique service whereby our clients enjoy the benefits of a private office and full-time personal assistant without the cost or responsibility of employment.”

Since we met Chronologica 2 years ago, their bespoke IT system has developed significantly and their services have become even more accessible for occasional users as well as annual clients. And with their 4th anniversary this week Chronologica has an impressive portfolio of clients ranging from individuals with long working hours to families with multiple homes to manage. They now have a team of 5 full-time employees.  

Chronologica’s bespoke IT system serves as a vital nerve centre to professionally manage the myriad of information, projects, accounts and services for each client.

The system offers a clear view of their client’s family, houses, cars, insurances, service providers and much more:


It incorporates a highly efficient "project” platform that manages the multiple on-going tasks per client, including monitoring important dates (a passport or credit card expiring, a house or insurance contract renewing) with reminders and alerts in advance:


The system houses an internal invoice paying system to manage client’s invoices:


There are also monthly and annual expenditure reports that help people understand their cash flow and plan for the future:


Beyond their IT system, Chronologica understands the need to add value at every step and has therefore created tailored services to help look after people during times of need, where outsourcing projects to reduce stress and avoid costly mistakes becomes invaluable. Here are some of their more popular services:

Moving Home, Arriving or Leaving Switzerland – Chronologica liaises with service providers to handle: the address changes; the creation, transferral or cancellation of household contracts; applications for passport, permit and car registration documents; and ensuring Swiss formalities are respected.

Expectant Mothers – a pivotal time in life when organising a permit, health insurance and the registration of the birth for your new arrival are unwelcome distractions.

Marriage – Chronologica manages the name changes for your passport, permit, driving licence, banks and service providers, so the honeymoon feeling does not come to an abrupt end.

Insurance Review – Chronologica compiles the documentation and liaises with an independent broker to ensure you have the right coverage.

Enrolment with Chômage – Chronologica handles the process from A to Z - the sooner applicants are successfully enrolled the better.
