On 20 December 2018, the Minister for Legal Protection (the "Minister") sent a letter to Parliament about the ongoing modernisation of Dutch corporate law. The letter follows up on the 2016 progress letter on the same subject.
The letter covers six subjects, which are summarised in this newsletter. Where possible, the time at which a bill should be submitted pursuant to the annual schedule of the Ministry of Justice and Security, is mentioned. Finally, we bring to your attention a recent bill that would require greater transparency by foundations and other civil society organisations.
