Under certain conditions, the law authorises a partner or shareholder to lease her/his shares to a third party. This operation has as its main purpose the facilitation of a subsequent transfer of the securities namely, a full takeover of the company.
Regarding self-employed professions, the law does not apply until the salaried professionals or professional collaborators are practicing within the company. Since 20 December 2014, self-employed professionals practising in an SARL or SEL may also lease the partnership or company shares which they hold to colleagues outside of their company.
Note that companies intervening in the health sector or exercising the functions of a public or ministerial officer are not eligible for this law.
