Updated on Monday 21st July 2014

Question: Do we need to write a statute when opening a general partnership company in Romania?

Answer: The General Partnership Company is established in Romania on the basis of articles of incorporation, but the law doesn’t enforce you to write a statute, also it doesn’t forbid the associates to write one if they want to.

According to Article 7 from Law 31/1991, the most important details that must be mentioned in the articles of incorporation are the following:

  1. The personal data of shareholders, office address (main headquarters) and secondary office address;
  2.  Social Shares (social capital);
  3.  Duration of the future company in Romania;
  4.  Modality of liquidation.

You must know that, when founding a General Partnership Company Romania, the articles of incorporation must be in authentic form.
