How to get to the National Court Register
Registration takes place on the basis of the submitted application KRS-Z3. For this reason, in most cases such entities are commercial companies. Subsequently, after the company has been established, the partners are required to file a registration application. For this reason, a similar obligation is imposed on them at the time of acquisition of shares in an existing company by means of the KRS-ZE form.
What happens if I do not register the entity with the National Court Register?
In the case of failure to notify the entity or change its owners, there is a possibility to incur a financial penalty and in the case of avoidance of a financial penalty – a criminal penalty. Therefore, the court has the possibility to order the liquidation of the company as “dead”.
