March has brought quite a bit of business news.
We already know the outcome of the dispute between the owner of the Hermès brand and Mason Rothschild, artist and creator of “MetaBirkin” NFTs. After a trial that lasted more than a year, a precedent-setting judgment has been handed down, which will no doubt be invoked by other American and perhaps also European courts for a long time to come. As Tomasz Szambelan predicts, there will only be more cases of this kind.
In turn, there should be fewer doubts as to the manner of calculating a board member’s term of office longer than one year, as Dominik Karkoszka discusses in detail.
Other doubts, with regard to the WHT withholding obligation, are also dispelled by Jakub Dittmer and Sławomir Wnuczek, who answer questions about withholding tax in the latest #Tax Focus. For his part, Krzysztof Zięba talks about the Omnibus Directive, which will already be familiar to retailers and e-commerce owners.
As is so often the case, the devil is in the details, and so Paweł Mardas suggests what to do in order to carry out an M&A transaction as safely as possible. And he has promised more on the subject, so stay tuned.
