    View Authors August 2019

    On August 2, 2019 the Polish President signed into law the act amending the Commercial Companies Code, thus introducing to the Polish legal system a new company type – a Simplified Joint-Stock Company (PSA). It is the answer to the postulates of the start-up environment, which believed that the Polish system had lacked a legal form facilitating cost-effcient and flexible innovative operations and investments in new technologies. The act will enter into force on March 1, 2020.
