Identification of legal persons
What are the particularities of the legal entity in accordance with the legislation that governs this field?
Pursuant to the provisions of the New Civil Code in Book I, "About people", the main elements that can be used in order to properly identify a legal entity in Romania are as follows:
- registered office;
- other elements.
All legal entities which have established headquarters in Romania, according to the articles of incorporation of the company or itsstatus, are considered to be of Romanian nationality.
The articles of incorporation of the company will determine the name that the company will be wearing from that moment on and, at the moment of the registration of the legal entity, the name, alongside other identifiers, will be listed in the public register.
The headquarters of the legal person is also established through the means of the article incorporation or its status. Romanian law provides the right for a legal entity to hold more locations of a secondary nature which can be offices, branches or outlets depending on the core business of the company. This is very useful for companies which wish to extent the business throughout the country.
Regarding the documents emanating from the legal entity, whatever form they may take, they must include the name and registered office of the company, along with other identifying elements provided by the law in particular cases. The sanction for the breach of these provisions is the payment of damages to the person(s) injured by the breach.
