New procedures concerning filings with the RCS

As from 1 November 2014, all filings with the Trade and Companies Register (registre du commerce et des sociétés) ("RCS") must be done electronically through their website (www.rcsl.lu ). After this date, the RCS will no longer accept filings in paper form. A helpdesk comprising RCS employees will be available at the RCS premises in order to help users prepare their electronic filings. It should be noted that this helpdesk will only be accessible by appointment and that filings made through the helpdesk will in turn increase in price.

In accordance with Article 1 of the Law of 28 July 2014 concerning the compulsory deposit and immobilisation of shares and units in bearer form, extracts from documents relating to the appointment and termination of the functions of depositaries of public limited companies (sociétés anonymes) and limited partnerships with share capital (sociétés en commandite par actions), must be filed with the RCS electronically through the RCS website.
