Topic Measures Publication of financial reports: Federal Office of Justice imposes disciplinary fine against Agennix AG
On 6 April 2018, the Federal Office of Justice (Bundesamt für Justiz – BfJ) imposed a further disciplinary fine amounting to 7,500 euros against Agennix AG.
The disciplinary fine order related to a breach of section 325 of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch – HGB) by Agennix AG. Agennix AG had failed to submit its accounting documents for the short financial year from 1 January 2013 to 31 May 2013 for the purpose of disclosure to the operator of the German Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) in electronic form within the prescribed period. The legal basis for the sanction is section 335 of the HGB.
On 20 April 2018 the company lodged a complaint against the disciplinary fine order.
