Signing with e-signature in CEE

1 July 2020

Digitalisation affects all aspects of a business’s operations, including contracts, internal documentation and employment relationships. The COVID-19 pandemic has created the need for contactless and remote contracting, as a result of which businesses are turning to digital contracting and electronic signatures. Using the appropriate form of e-signatures helps businesses save time and money, increase security, and enhance their environmental credentials.

This guide focuses on the most important legal areas where electronic signatures are usually used: employment law, commercial contracts, real estate law, corporate law and banking and finance contracts. This guide additionally includes helpful at-a-glance charts that compare the different legal situations and uses of e-signatures in CEE countries. We focus on nine countries: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.

Needless to say, national legal systems are usually complex and can easily trap the unwary. It is, therefore, essential that you seek proper legal advice.
