The coronavirus is about to change the country of tax payment

Anilla Gondi | 8 February 2021

We already know that Covid is changing the way we live and work. We’re keeping away from each other, we’re traveling less, we’re talking to each through video calls, and we’re working at home. But most of us haven’t thought about how these changes may affect the country our company pays taxes in.

How should we write a “Covid clause”?

Péter Gyimesi | 19 November 2020

Apart from all its other nasty effects, the coronavirus has shown how unprepared lawyers are. Not long after the outbreak of the virus, it became all too obvious that the “force majeure” clauses traditionally worded along Anglo-Saxon lines were not worth the paper they were written on: they simply weren’t suitable for addressing the kind of problems that were arising in the new situation. Based on what we’ve learnt over the past few months, however, it’s now a lot clearer how a “Covid-proof” contract should be drawn up.

Enforcement has finally arrived in the 21st century

Boglárka Zsibrita | 7 July 2020

The healthcare emergency situation has accelerated the digitisation of tasks and processes in a wide range of areas. Enforcement proceedings based on notarial deeds are no exception, where an electronic procedure became mandatory a few months ago. The only question is how long the signature itself will still need to be in writing.

Is the confusion surrounding emails finally coming to an end?

Ágnes Bejó | 24 June 2020

To this day, the domestic legal system has remained silent on how contracts concluded by email should be treated. However, legislation recently adopted in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic explicitly allows communication via email between a company and its private-individual members. Could this be the first step towards a more comprehensive legal acceptance of emails?

Home delivery – on a bumpy road

Levente Bihari | 7 May 2020

With in-store shopping often relegated to a secondary role, online forms of trading have come to the fore of late. Nowadays, merchants that don’t adopt web commerce solutions alongside or instead of their physical stores can find themselves at a distinct disadvantage in the market. It’s worth bearing in mind, however, that besides implementing various IT developments and having to organise home deliveries, running a webshop requires some major preparatory work in the legal area as well.

Infected deals

Ágnes Bejó | 29 April 2020

Everything that used to be simple and straightforward when concluding or completing M&A transactions poses major challenges to market participants in today’s crisis circumstances. New legal and technical solutions have been designed to overcome these difficulties, some of which are expected to remain with us even after the crisis.

Look before you leap: staying on the right side of the law during the crisis

Levente Bihari | 22 April 2020

Panicking amid the health crisis, company managers can easily feel pressured to take some “seemingly obvious” legal or business measures to resolve their situation. However, these measures often involve serious legal risks and should be approached with caution.

Under threat of insolvency? The changing responsibilities of the CEO

Péter Gyimesi | 15 April 2020

The impending economic crisis is expected to upset the financial position of many businesses. At these companies, the responsibilities of the company manager will also change: in a near-bankruptcy situation, the manager is obliged to take into account not only the interests of the company but those of the creditors as well. But what is simple on paper is not so straightforward in practice.
