The emergency bill on coronavirus-related matters includes temporary facilities to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on various aspects of society. For Dutch companies, the bill includes measures aimed at helping organise and time general meetings amidst the coronavirus pandemic, including the option of holding virtual shareholder meetings.

On 29 September 2022, the 14th extension decree was published, moving the end date of the Covid-19 emergency legislation further back to 1 December 2022. This allows general meetings of legal entities to be held without physical attendance.
