The obligation to run a website for joint-stock and limited joint-stock partnerships

Remember! From January 1st, joint-stock and limited joint-stock partnerships should update or create their websites. The website will publish those announcements which are required by law or have been introduced in the statutes of companies. This applies to all entries in the National Court Register (including deletions). We are talking here about every case that is reported to the National Court Register, including changes in the company’s governing bodies, changes in the statute, or reporting a financial statement.

The company’s website should, as required by the regulation (Amendment to the Code of Commercial Companies of 06/09/2019, art. 1, point 1), have a separate place for communication with shareholders. It also means that joint-stock companies and limited joint-stock companies which already have their websites ready should verify whether their existing portals meet this requirement and, if necessary, adapt to it.

The obligation described here applies without exception to all joint-stock companies and limited joint-stock partnerships, irrespective of the nature or size of their operations, as well as their shareholding structure.

The abovementioned amendment also introduces the obligation to submit information on the website of a joint-stock company and limited joint-stock partnership to the National Court Register (National Court Register). An application for entry in the Register should be submitted no later than within 7 days from the date of the reason for entering the entry.
