A new law amending the procedure for adopting resolutions and determining the composition of the general meeting of shareholders of LLCs enters into force on 1 September 2014.
The law establishes the requirement for notarizing resolutions and the composition of general meetings of shareholders of LLCs. An LLC has the right not to carry out such notarization if:
- A corresponding provision is present in the charter of the LLC or;
