Shareholders' Agreement

This document can be used in two main ways:

Firstly, either as shareholders’ agreement which governs shares and other securities issued by a company; or as a unitholders’ agreement which governs units and other securities issued by a unit trust with a company trustee.

In both situations, this document is best suited to Pty Ltd Company- between 2 to 10 security holders.

Shareholders Agreements often cover similar matters to a company constitution; however, they also:

  • Provide more details on a range of issues, or deal with a range of scenarios, not commonly or comprehensively dealt with in a standard constitution;
  • Unlike constitutions are not public documents.

The document has several customisable features including:

  • Dispute resolution mechanics and dispute buy-out mechanics
  • Pre-emption rights
  • Tag/drag along.

You need at least the following information to get started:

Details of the company such as:

  • Name and ACN
  • Registered office address and state/territory it was registered in
  • The company’s main business activity
  • Does the company have an approved business plan and budget?

Shareholders details such as:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address and fax number if applicable

Other information may also be required depending on your choice of clauses.
