New Code of Companies and Associations adopted

Belgium’s Federal Parliament adopted the much anticipated new Code of Companies and Associations (and accompanying tax legislation) today. The new Code constitutes a seismic shift in Belgian company law through modernization, simplification, adaptation to European evolutions, and by introducing an unprecedented degree of flexibility and contract freedom. The new Code will enter into force on 1 May 2019. The full text can be consulted here. The new Code is adopted just in time for the next contrast law seminar, which will be held on 14 March 2019 and which is dedicated entirely to the new opportunities offered by the Code for family business, venture capital and private equity transactions and the organization of company groups. We hope to see you there!
