The Management Board shall be the executive body of a company which manages and represents a capital company (company), thereby including the most extensive matters related to the operation of a capital company. The broad range of responsibilities also includes a high level of responsibility. The responsibility of the member of the Board shall be regulatedIn Commercial Law, as well as other laws, such as law“On taxes and levies”andInsolvency Law.
The responsibility of a member of the board of directors is not only for the violation of regulatory enactments, but also for the losses it has caused to the capital company or the shareholders of the capital company (parts owners). If the board is composed of several members of the board, they shall be jointly and severally liable for causing losses to the capital company, which means that the capital company may apply for damages to any of the members of the board.
In order to relieve a member of the Management Board, it must demonstrate that it has acted as a good and careful master. This is due to the fact that the member of the Board of Governors is required to perform his duties as a good and careful master. The term “good and careful master” means a general clause which is not defined in the regulatory framework but the content of which is specified according to the actual circumstances of the situation. The most common means of “good and careful ownership” is to understand compliance with the interests of a capital company in decision-making, as well as compliance with the regulatory enactments, the rules of association of a capital company and the decisions of legal members, the taking of reasonable business decisions and the loyalty to a capital company, or, in general, acting in the manner that an average reasonable merchant would act under certain circumstances. However, as already mentioned, the content of this concept is individual and may vary in each case.
Acting in accordance with a good and careful yardstick must also be demonstrated in cases where a member of the board does not wish to respond jointly and severally to losses caused by the behaviour of another member of the board. In such situations, acting as a good and careful host does not only recognise the vote against the adoption of the decision which caused the loss to the capital company, but must be able to demonstrate that the member of the board has done everything it can that was in its power so that the decision in question is not confirmed.
As a member of the Management Board begins to perform his duties at the time when he is elected to the office of a member of the Management Board, the duty of careful master must be exercised throughout the period of the duties of the member of the Management Board. It should also be noted that a member of the board may be held liable within 5 years of the date of the loss to the capital company, so that their liability does not end with the leaving of the seat of the board member.
