Procedures Guide

The Procedures guide allows entrepreneurs and decision-makers to have a reliable, precise and up to date overview of legal procedures and measures concerning commercial formalities to be undertaken. It is broken down into 6 sections in which you can find information and documentation required for formalities with Registry Offices at the Commercial Courts.

Pledge of company shares

Publication of pledge of shares in a commercial company follows the rules for pledge without repossession, set forth in Decree 2006-1804 of 23 December 2006. Removal of a registration is anticipated by Article 8 of this Decree.

It may be requested by the creditor or settlor based upon agreement of the parties or of an instrument withdrawing the registration. It may also occur by virtue of a decision entered into force by res judicata.

Removal is made through a reference placed in the margin of the registration by the court clerk.

The court clerk sends to the requester, at its cost, a removal certificate.

Removed (or expired) registrations no longer appear in the registration record.
