The companies that will have to register are: unlimited partnerships, limited partnerships, limited joint-stock partnerships, joint-stock companies other than public partnerships, and (from March next year) – simple joint-stock partnerships. The register will be public.
Failure to comply with the obligation to indicate the actual beneficiaries will result in a fine of up to 1 million PLN.

On 6th September 2019, the Commercial Companies Code and amendments to certain other acts were signed. This amendment introduced mandatory dematerialization of shares of private companies and full dematerialization of shares of public companies. The regulations will come into force in January 2021 and from that moment paper registered and bearer shares will be digitally recorded. Our trainee Katarzyna Jaworska wrote about the planned changes in the article “Not only bonds – common dematerialization of shares is in the pipeline”. Soon we will present another study on how dematerialization will change the share trading market and how companies and their shareholders should prepare for it.
We present the latest publication by DJP lawyers published in the international series Global Legal Insights 2019.
