Corporate Governance – Differences between Poland and Sweden
The Polish corporate law is substantially different from the corporate law in Sweden, which has major practical implications on corporate governance in the respective country as well as on the authority, the competences and the responsibilities of the corporate bodies. The Swedish concepts of ”styrelse” and ”VD” cannot be directly transferred to the Polish business environment. Polish corporations investing in Sweden also discover that Swedish companies are governed in a way which they are not used to. Members in corporate bodies can under certain circumstances incur criminal liability and/or liability for damages. Such risks can, however, be largely reduced by adequate steps.
The main contents of this event are:
types of business entities in Poland and in Sweden
the corporate bodies which govern the companies in the respective country and how they operate
the corporate bodies` responsibilities towards the companies, the owners, creditors and other stakeholders, tax and social security liability and liability relating to insolvency
what kind of decisions can been made by the executive corporate bodies in each country, with or without consent of other corporate bodies and/or the owners
risk reduction by limiting the ability of the executive corporate bodies to make certain kinds of decisions and by control and supervision
