The law relating to companies in the United Kingdom has quite a bit to say about the relationship a company has with its directors and shareholders, but says very little about the relationship between shareholders. It is very often the case that directors are also shareholders, blurring the lines between the rights and duties of an individual as a director and their rights and duties as a shareholder. The main purpose of a shareholders’ agreement, therefore, is to regulate the relationship between shareholders, a company and its directors.
Shareholders’ agreements can vary widely. This questionnaire relates to information we require to determine whether a standard shareholders’ agreement based on our standard template is appropriate for your company, or whether you need something more tailored.
We can draft your shareholders’ agreement for just £900.00 plus VAT.
Any additional drafting that may be required (e.g. more complex share transfer provisions) will be outside the scope of the standard shareholders’ agreement and will be more expensive. Please see the additional provisions section for more information.
In order to help us prepare your shareholders’ agreement, please complete the questionnaire. If any questions do not appear relevant, please answer “not applicable”. Once completed please submit to us using the upload facility below.
