A law came into force on 30 June 2013, which changed the provisions of the Civil Code and the law on state registration of legal entities and individual entrepreneurs. This law deals with the legal addresses of organizations.
In accordance with these amendments, legal entities bear responsibility for the validity of a company’s stated legal address. If the absence of a representative of the legal entity at the legal address entailed losses for another party because it failed to receive a communication, that party must be compensated for such losses. The presumption introduced by the legislators that the data contained in the unified state register of legal entities is valid allows any party to rely on the register’s data until otherwise is proven.
