Non-profit legal persons entered in the Bulgarian register of non-profit legal persons to district courts are obliged to submit an application for re-registration until 31 December 2022. In this way the term for re-registration is prolonged with 2 years.
The re-registration is carried out by entering the non-profit legal person in the register of non-profit legal persons to the Registry Agency on the basis of an application and a certificate of current legal status, wherein the court indicates the BULSTAT code of the legal person, the branch of the foreign non-profit legal person respectively, containing full details of the current recorded circumstances. Associations and foundations submit the court the recorded and updated articles of association or statute, certified by the court at their registration or by their legal representatives.
The re-registration is also carried out on the basis of an act of a judicial or other public authority and a private enforcement agent or on the basis of an application by the person concerned, when they are empowered by law to request registration, deletion or announcement in the register.
With the application for re-registration an application for entry of a new circumstance, deletion and announcement may be submitted, except for the cases of transformation.
Upon re-registration the non-profit legal person is entered with its existing name.
Upon re-registration the non-profit legal persons and the branches of foreign non-profit legal persons are excluded from the BULSTAT register and the BULSTAT code becomes the identification code of the non-profit legal person or of its branch respectively.
In the above cases, the court provides the Registry Agency with access to capture an electronic image of the whole numbered company file.
Until 31 December 2022 references and certificates of the documents on the basis of which entries, deletions or announcements of re-registered non-profit legal persons or branches of foreign non-profit legal persons have been carried out, are issued by the Registry Agency within 14 days of the request.
Until 31 December 2022 the district courts ensure the right of everyone to review the register of non-profit legal persons for any not re-registered non-profit legal person and the documents on the basis of which the entries have been made and issue transcripts thereof, as well as certificates of current legal status.
