  • Legislative changes to simplify incorporating a company under Romanian law

    One of the key amendments provides that starting now any natural or legal person can be a sole shareholder in more than one limited liability company, and furthermore – a limited liability company can have a limited liability company held in turn by a sole shareholder (chaining) as sole shareholder. Prior to the recent legislative changes the companies tried to circumvent the restrictions using a second minority shareholder (holding one share). Such practices, however, were causing delays in the incorporation process and in the structuring of the group or of acquisition transactions. (See Article)

  • Romanian government details UK citizens’ residence, employment and travel rights in case of a no-deal Brexit

    Romanian government details UK citizens’ residence, employment and travel rights in case of a no-deal Brexit - Given the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, the European Commission has asked Member States to take a “generous approach” to the rights of UK nationals already living in their territories, subject to reciprocity. In response, Member States have agreed to extend many existing residence, employment and travel rights for a temporary period. In some case, UK citizens have been offered special conditions that other third-country nationals do not enjoy, particularly in Member States where UK tourism is important (e.g., Portugal and Spain). Several Member States have offered permanent national “regularization” for UK citizens already living in the country. (See Article)
