Detailed about a change of the head

How to change the head of a legal entity?

In order to change the leader, it is necessary to convene and hold a general meeting of participants/members. At the same time, the decision made at the general meeting must be recorded in the minutes and the signatures of the participants must be certified by a notary public.

If the legal entity has only 1 participant, then he/she alone draws up the decision, the signature of which must also be certified by a notary public.

The decision to change the head is made by a majority vote of all members of the legal entity, unless otherwise provided by the statute.

Is it possible to fire and appoint a head on the same day?

No, the appointment of a new head should be the day after the dismissal of the current head of the legal entity.

Is it necessary to submit a notice of hiring a manager to the tax inspectorate?

No, information on the appointment of the head is sent to the tax inspectorate automatically from the state registrar. However, it is mandatory to submit a notice of hiring of all other employees of a legal entity to the tax inspectorate.

Is it possible to carry out the change procedure without the personal presence of the participants and the manager?

Yes, the entire procedure can be carried out with the power of attorney.

It is necessary to issue a power of attorney:

  • from the participant/s of the legal entity - for decision-making at the general meeting;
  • from a legal entity - for state registration of changes.
