  • to improve the functioning of the Commercial Register, in particular by means of:
    • a change in the list of entities for which it is mandatory to be registered in the Commercial Register,
    • elimination of the paper form of applications for registration of data in the Commercial Register and introduction of the requirement to file applications solely in electronic form,
    • deletion of the registered entities that have not fulfilled their statutory obligations with respect to the Commercial Register and other state authorities for a long time (so-called inactive or dormant companies; companies which have not yet translated the nominal values of their contributions and share capital to the euro currency; companies breaching the obligation to create or supplement a reserve fund; companies defaulting on the obligation to file their financial statements in the Collection of Deeds and/or in the Register of Financial Statements; etc.);
