Benefits of having a written agreement

Whether you’re starting a new company or investing in a company that is already established, as shareholder you need to successfully manage the company and associated business relationships for future growth.

A Shareholders Agreement sets out shareholders’ rights and how you’ll manage and operate the company. It covers a number of issues, such as:

  • The shareholders’ objectives in establishing the company.
  • Contribution to capital funding.
  • Shareholder meetings and voting rights.
  • Dividend policy.
  • Process if a shareholder wants to sell shares in the event of retirement, death or disability.
  • Dispute resolutions procedures for shareholders.

Importantly, this Shareholders Agreement sets out shareholder responsibilities and liabilities so each shareholder knows exactly where they stand on important areas that affect the company and in relation to potential future events. For example, the process to be followed if there’s a dispute between shareholders, or what happens if a shareholder wants to exit the company.

Don’t be caught between a rock and a hard place with a ‘he said, she said’ situation that could turn into stressful and prolonged litigation. Put the business and shareholders in a position to succeed with a clear shareholders agreement that you tailor to your specific needs.
