The 10 February 2016 order on the reform of contract law has introduced limitations on legal entities' capacity to contract.  New Article 1145, paragraph 2 of the Civil Code, which comes into force on 1 October 2016, limits legal entities' capacity to contract only to actions required in pursuit of their corporate purpose. Although the reform carves out the possibility for an entity to accomplish everyday transactions permitted by law or custom, subject to them being concluded in the ordinary course of business, companies should nevertheless be increasingly vigilant when drafting their charters and statutes.
