Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

 

The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce and Linklaters have the pleasure to invite you to the seminar: 'The New Belgian Code of Companies and Associations: Practical Consequences for Chinese Businesses', which will take place on 4 December and starts at 12h00 at Linklaters LLP, rue Brederodestraat 13, 1000 Brussels.

 

An extensive legislative reform of the Belgian company law is underway, aiming to modernise the rules and make Belgium a more flexible and attractive place of incorporation for both national and foreign companies. The Belgian government prepared a New Code of Companies and Associations, which has been approved in first reading by the Parliament on 23 October 2018. The reform will have an impact on all legal entities in Belgium.

 

The Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC) and the law firm Linklaters LLP, are jointly organising a seminar during which the main aspects of the reform and the practical consequences for Chinese businesses will be discussed, including:

  • Simplification of corporate legal forms and structures
  • New, streamlined private limited liability company (SRL/BV), without registered capital
  • Modernised corporate governance
  • Increased mobility of companies
  • Tax consequences of the reform
