Holding meetings of joint stock companies by correspondence off the agenda

On March 18, 2020, Federal Law No. 50-FZ on the provision to joint stock companies of the opportunity to hold general meetings by absentee voting regardless of the agenda was adopted.

For holding an absentee meeting with an agenda on issues:

the decision of the board of directors (supervisory board) is necessary.

Holding meetings in absentia, regardless of the agenda, is permitted by law from March 18, 2020 to December 31, 2020.

It should be reminded that earlier the legislator provided for a ban on holding general meetings of joint stock companies in absentia with the above agenda.

The Federal Law No. 50-FZ does not apply to limited liability companies, in which the procedure for holding general meetings remains the same.
