COMMON QUESTIONS 

 

What is a shareholders deed? . . .

A shareholders deed is a contract between the shareholders of a company that governs their relationship and business arrangements, sets out their rights, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities, and protects their interests. It relates to matters separate from, but is usually read with, a company's constitution.

What is a company constitution? . . .

It's not a requirement for a company to have a constitution. If a company does not have its own constution, then it can rely on the provisions in the Corporations Act, called the “replaceable rules” to govern its internal management. Section 141 of the Corporations Act, contains a table that sets outs each of the replaceable rules. If a company has not yet been registered, the persons that consent to be members of the company must agree in writing to the terms of the constitution before the application for registration has been lodged. If the company is registered, then the company must pass a special resolution adopting it. A special resolution is a resolution that has been passed by at least 75% of the votes cast, usually at a general meeting.

What is a deed of accession? . . .

There may be a time when a person buys shares in the company and becomes a shareholder. The new shareholder needs to be incorporated into the shareholders deed. A new shareholder can sign a deed of accession to the shareholders agreement. Upon signing the deed of accession, the new shareholder will be bound by the provisions of the shareholders’ agreement. The deed of accession should sign the deed of accession as soon as the new shareholder becomes a shareholder. The Quick Laws shareholders deed includes a deed of accession.

Why do I need a shareholders deed and company constitution? . . .

Although you and your business partners may be on good terms now, sometimes running a company puts a strain on that relationship. A shareholders deed helps protect your interests if problems arise. If a disagreements arises, it can be very helpful to have a clear idea of what the business owners have agreed to before the dispute, or if an owners circumstances change with regard to their ability to run the company.

How do I start a company? . . .

A company is incorporated when it is registered by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC). To register a company, you must lodge a prescribed form with ASIC and pay a fee. When ASIC registers a company it will give the company an Australian Company Number (ACN) and issue a certificate of registration.
