Today, 15 June 2016, for limited liability companies whose financial year coincides with the calendar year - and so for the vast majority of entities – is the deadline for convening the general meeting of shareholders.

According to the Code of Commercial Companies, the ordinary shareholders’ meeting should be held within six months after the end of each financial year, so in the case of companies in which the financial year coincides with the calendar year, the ordinary shareholders' meeting should be held on 30 June 2016. In order to hold the meeting on this date, it should at least two weeks before the date of the shareholders’ meeting, in accordance with the procedure of convening, send the appropriate correspondence to the shareholders, and this should take place on 15 June 2016 at the latest.

As a formality, it is worth pointing out that the Code of Commercial Companies also provides in certain circumstances the possibility of taking resolutions without formally convening a shareholders' meeting.
