NEWSFLASH - Share Deals in Romania Simplified

On the 5th of November simplifications of the Companies’ Law 31/1990 came into force, which ease, among others, the transfer of shares to third parties (non-shareholders). In contrast to transfers among existing shareholders, the lengthy 2-step procedure for assignments to third parties took about 2 months. Now this procedure has been significantly shortened and adapted to the investors’ requirements, which is an answer to the voices from practicians over the past 10 years.

NEWSFLASH_The_correct_identification_of_the_ultimate_beneficial_owners

As already communicated several times, companies, associations and foundations must register the ultimate beneficial owners (in short UBO) either with the Commercial Register or with the Ministry of Justice by November 1st, 2020.

The correct identification of the UBO caused difficulties for some companies because the legal definitions are not easy to implement in a multi-level international group structure.

Our law firm directed several inquiries to the Anti-Money Laundering authorities in order to find out how the definitions were interpreted in certain cases, especially since the practice of the commercial register is inconsistent.
