Yes. Clarico is a an electronic share register and electronic share registers are allowed by law. The new Belgian Companies Code explicitly allows Belgian companies to maintain their share register in an electronic format 👩⚖️. The only requirement is that the board of directors has to take the decision (as with any other decision) to move the company’s shareholder register to an electronic platform. This can be done in simple board minutes 📄. In addition, the law also requires that signatures in the electronic share registers are made electronically. We partnered with Connective and offer e-signatures on Clarico, so all good on our side 🤩!
Yes. Signatures in the shareholder register are not subject to any special signing instructions. As a result, the general rules in relation to signatures apply. The electronic signatures on Clarico are therefore admissible in evidence under Article 1322 of the Belgian Civil Code and Article 25 of the eIDAS Regulation.
Keep it as a relic of the past… or not. In the setting up of your company on Clarico you have the ability to upload a scan of the share register. As long as you keep a scan of the shareholder register up to the time you switched to Clarico (if you even had a physical shareholder register before), everything is fine. What you do with your physical shareholder register after that, is op to you 📦.
