Netherlands: Temporary COVID-19 Act allows virtual meetings for legal entities

0
The measures to contain COVID-19 in the Netherlands entail social distancing and restrictions on meetings. This also impairs decision-making within legal entities where the law or articles of association sometimes require physical meetings. To solve this issue, a temporary COVID-19 act has been adopted to allow for virtual general meetings and board meetings. The new rules apply with retroactive effect from 16 March 2020.
