The Directorate General for the Internal Market and Services launched a broad public online consultation on the cross-border transfers of registered offices of companies.
You will find below the consultation document and related information, the feedback statement from the public consultation, contributions from the stakeholders as well as additional information:
The European Commission has published in December 2007 an impact assessment on the Directive on the cross-border transfer of registered office. The document presents the pros and cons of possible policy actions, also including an evaluation of the consequences of not undertaking any regulatory action in this field. The impact assessment has been validated by the Commission's impact assessment board. Having weighed the arguments advanced, Commissioner McCreevy has decided there is no need for action at EU level on this issue. DG Internal Market and Services has therefore stopped work in this area.
The public consultation relates to the outline of the planned proposal for a 14th Company Law Directive on the cross-border transfer of the registered office of limited companies.
