Check the options to transfer the registered office from non-EU countries

A cross-border transfer of the registered office as stipulated in the Czech Transformation Act has recently experienced a mild but noticeable development. The key limit of the Transformation Act is the fact that it only relates to cross-border transformations with the EU (or EEA) states. Under this Act, no cross-border transformation has been possible to date with countries such as Switzerland, the USA or Russia and will not be possible with Great Britain after its exit from the EU. However, general guidance on the cross-border transfer of the registered office of any legal entity under the current Civil Code might be an interesting solution.
