A NEW MILESTONE JUDGMENT ON INTRA-COMMUNITY TRANSFER OF COMPANY SEATS CAUSING THE DEFINITIVE END OF THE REAL SEAT DOCTRINE?

10.11.2017

Following a reference for a preliminary ruling by the supreme court in civil and criminal matters in Poland, the European Court of Justice has ruled an important judgment on 25 October 2017 on intra-Community transfer of company seats (C-106/16).

The shareholders of a Polish company established under Polish law wanted to move the statutory seat of the company to Luxembourg without transferring the actual seat. Consequently, the removal from the Polish trade register was requested.

However, Polish law requires the dissolution of the company in order to be removed from the trade register.

The shareholders argued that a dissolution was neither necessary nor possible, as the company had not lost its legal personality.

The case was brought to the supreme court in Poland, which filed a request for a preliminary ruling with the Court of Justice on whether the mandatory dissolution unlawfully restricts the company’s freedom of establishment.

According to the Court, the transfer of the statutory seat of a company to another member state without the transfer of the real seat falls under the freedom of establishment. The original member state must allow the removal of the company from the trade register without liquidating the company.

The Belgian legislator follows this European point of view with respect to the real vs. the statutory seat in the new Companies and Associations Code (CAC/”Wetboek van Vennootschappen en Verenigingen”). As a result, the real seat doctrine will be abolished and instead the Belgian legislator opts for the statutory seat doctrine. The CAC will enter into force on the first day of the financial year following the publication in the Belgian Official Gazette + 1 year (and will therefore not occur for each company at the same time). This new Code will bring about many new possibilities, but also changes in current Belgian company law.
