§ 79 Penalty payments
(1) Directors or liquidators who do not comply with sections 35a and 71 (5) are to be required to do so by the court of registration by means of the imposition of a penalty payment; section 14 of the Commercial Code remains unaffected. Each individual penalty payment may not exceed 5,000 euros.
(2) With due regard for the applications for entry in the Commercial Register referred to in sections 7, 54, 57 (1) and 58 (1) no. 3, a penalty payment is not to be imposed in accordance with section 14 of the Commercial Code insofar as this refers to the application for entry of the company’s registered office in the Commercial Register.
