What is the new Belgian Company Code and how did this reform come about? The objective is clear: to modernize Belgian company and association law by simplifying it, making it more flexible and adjusting it to the progress of European law. By introducing this reform, the Belgian legislator intends to make Belgium more competitive and attractive for (foreign) investors.

According to the draft bill, the new Code is expected to enter into force in May 2019. After this date, all new companies, associations or foundations must conform to the new regime.
