Corporate Registration Controls

.   The laws of the jurisdiction where a corporation is formed control the company's operations under a bill submitted to the Berlin diet on January 7, 2008, Brigitte Zypries, the federal attorney general, reported in a press release. The proposed statute covers also associations and other juridical persons.

The main effect is of the bill is that foreign entities with management headquarters in Germany and German companies headquartered abroad will be certain as to the applicable corporate law.

The statute clarifies an important issue under European Union equality and free movement rules. The attorney general notes that the statute, if passed, would also apply to non-EU entities. There is no valid reason to treat them differently, she added.
