Business Bulletin No. 1/2013

In the first issue of the Business Bulletin in this year we bring you news from business and commercial law, selected from the last quarter of 2012. We focus primarily on changes which became effective on January 1, 2013. We also briefly summarize amendments to the Civil Procedure Code, a complex amendment to the Building Act, new acts regulating the structure of financial and customs authorities and news in the area of procedural and real estate law. We also draw your attention to an amendment to the Commercial Code and a new Act on Public Registers which is to be adopted in connection with recodification of private law. In the Case Law section we briefly summarize a decision of the Supreme Court concerning the validity of a resolution of a general meeting and a decision of the Office for Protection of Competition concerning forbidden cartel agreements on market segmentation. For the News and Tips section we have selected new electronic applications of the Ministry of Justice which should make it easier to submit motions for changes with the Commercial Register and to obtain decisions with legal force and enforceability clause.
