Bill to introduce the UBO-register adopted by the Lower House of Parliament.

On 10 December last, the Lower House of Parliament approved the bill for the introduction of the UBO-register (the bill entitled "Implementation Act for Registration of ultimate stakeholders of companies and other legal entities"). However, entry into force of the Act can only take place after approval of the bill by the Senate, where it is currently still being debated.

CONTRACTING POST-BREXIT

Contracting post brexit

From a legal point of view, quite a few things change after Brexit. But what will Brexit particularly mean for existing contracts and the parties to these contracts from a Dutch legal perspective?
