Ocena rządowego projektu ustawy o zmianie ustawy – Kodeks spółek handlowych oraz niektórych innych ustaw
Assessment of the governmental Bill Amending the Act – the Commercial Companies Code and Certain Other Acts
Languages of publication
Adoption of the act will result in the introduction to legal trading of a simple joint-stock company (PSA), whose legal structure is inconsistent with the basic assumptions of the existing commercial companies system, as PSA shareholders are not liable for the company’s obligations or are not obliged to cover the minimum share capital prior to the formation of the company. Simple joint stock companies will not be obliged to establish a supervisory board, what may weaken internal control mechanisms in these entities. According to the bill, a PSA may be established for any legally permissible purpose, so that companies of this kind will not be established for the sole purpose of conducting business based on innovation. Therefore, solutions that are primarily intended to facilitate the development of innovative undertakings, can become a commonly used instrument to avoid personal liability for obligations.
