Due to the amendment to the Polish Commercial Companies Code introduced by the Act of 19 July 2019, a new type of company will be introduced into the Polish legal system, with effect from 1 March 2021: namely, the simple joint-stock company. The simple joint-stock company is innovative through its free choice between a monistic and dualistic management system. This paper aims to consider selected aspects as regards the legal position and competences of the board of directors in the monistic system, including the new provisions covering i.a. the duty of loyalty, flexibility of
the boards' structure and business judgment rule.

Keywords: simple joint-stock company; monistic system; board of directors.

Start-up aid seeks facilitate airlines' entry into new
regional markets. It is designed as an alternative to a
widespread, and combatted by the European
Commission, practice of offering advantageous discounts
of airport charges and various marketing contracts to air
carriers in exchange for entering a given regional market.
Start-up aid is designed to be time-limited and once
expired, the route is intended to become profitable and
thus the operating carrier would be economically
incentivised to remain on that market.
The research shows that airlines seeking to obtain
subsidies are not interesting to remain on the market
once state aid expires but are inclined to relocate their
operations in order to receive new start-up aid. This
brings up the question of how to perceive the
effectiveness of start-up aid in the light of the regulatory
challenge of using public funds as a stimulus for air routes
that intends to be commercially viable.

German law and the purpose of this regulation, the
meaning of the term "written vote" under art. 231 § 4
k.s.h. and causes and legal consequences of the repeal of
art. 231 § 4 k.s.h.
