Belgian corporate law is envisaging a new challenge: a new company code will be launched. The objective is to render Belgian company law more attractive for Belgian and foreign entrepreneurs conducting business in- and outside Belgian territory by only retaining four legal forms: the partnership, the private limited liability company, the public limited liability company and the co-operative company with limited liability. The intentions are ambitious and the new Company code strives to more simplification, flexibility, abolition of outdated rules and types of companies and a strong supplementary law.
