ANSWERS TO FAQs

Can a CEO of any other company become our new CEO?
There is no law against being CEO of more than one company. Therefore, when preparing papers for replacement of CEO, we do not even ask our clients whether their new CEO is the head of some other company.
Can a foreigner become the company’s CEO?
Yes, they can. In order to do so, they need to obtain identification number and employment permit.
Does the record of CEO’s replacement have period of validity?
Up to June, 2018 the record had to be submitted to the registration authority no later than on the third working day from its date of signature. Otherwise it became invalid for the state registration. Nowadays this regulation no longer exists, so there are no terms for submission of the documents.
Can we replace CEO the day we sign the record of the general meeting of members?
Unfortunately, it is not possible. On the day when the signing takes place we release previous CEO from the office. The new one is appointed and registered on the following day, as there cannot be two CEOs on the same day. Moreover, since the “anti-raider law” was introduced, the record of the general meeting of members for replacement of company’s CEO has been notarized. Hence the meeting cannot be organized in advance.
Can the new CEO be appointed at the beginning of the following month, while the current CEO is dismissed, for instance, in the middle of this month?
No, for the company cannot function without a CEO. The new CEO has to be appointed the day after dismissal of the previous one.
Can the new CEO be appointed by assigning order?
No, they cannot. CEO is appointed according to the decision of a competent authority (general meeting or company owners), which takes the form of a protocol or the owners’ decision.
