On April 15, 2022, Forum Media, Serbian subsidiary of international publishing company Forum Media Group, hosted a seminar on: “Comprehensive Guide to Doing Business”.
The seminar consisted of a presentation made by Igor Živkovski, Živković Samardžić Corporate and M&A Partner. The presentation covered different aspects of companies’ day-to-day operations, with focus on the amendments made to the Companies Law and other laws in the past year. The aim was to further explain certain provisions which may have caused confusion in their interpretation.
Participants were able to gain a clearer picture on how to comply with the Law on the Procedure of Registration with the Business Registers Agency, the Law on the Central Records of Beneficial Owners as well as the Law on Archive Materials and Archival Activities, all of which are current topics in the business world. The seminar touched on another important area discussing the possibilities of preventing the abuse of the right to sick leave by employees. The presentation also covered some of the deadlines and obligations of natural and legal entities awaiting in the second quarter of 2022, including the sanctions for non-compliance. Given the large number of ambiguities regarding the laws that dictate us how to conduct business, the presentation addressed issues such as: the use of seal, the purpose of apostille, the test of entrepreneurial independence, issuing an invoice instead of a contract, etc.
“The aim of today’s seminar was to point out some of the most significant changes in the world of business management, and to hopefully help interested participants with dilemmas they often face. The topic I found particularly interesting was the Law on Archive Materials and Archival Activities, especially the ways and mechanisms of its implementation.”, outlined Igor Živkovski.
