The new Companies and Associations Code – what’s in it for funds? (Stibbe)

A break-out session offering insights into the opportunities offered by the new Companies and Associations Code by highlighting some “hot topics” relevant for funds.

A(n) (r)evolution in Belgian corporate law has taken in place in 2019 by the entry into force of the new Companies and Associations Code.

While companies incorporated following 1 May 2019 are currently already subject to the Companies and Associations Code, existing companies should comply with the mandatory rules thereof as of 1 January 2020.

On the basis of practical takeaways, this session aims to address some challenges and clarify how to make use of the opportunities ahead.
