Shareholders Agreement

A shareholders agreement is a document that sets out the rights, duties, and responsibilities of shareholders. A shareholders agreement is created to protect the interests of the shareholders and govern the relationship between shareholders. If there is more than one shareholder it is imperative to have a shareholders agreement.

A shareholders agreement is drafted in alignment with your company Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) and can be tailored to your company needs. In addition, it can be amended as those needs change provided all shareholders agree thereupon unlike the MOI which requires any amendments to be lodged with CIPC.

Therefore, in summary, the MOI will usually guide the long term structure of the company whereas the shareholders agreement is a document that can be promptly updated through the various growth stages of the business.

We will draft a custom shareholders agreement suited to your unique shareholding requirements.

Creative CFO can help with this process and will:

  • Have a 1-hour workshop with the shareholders and discuss the items they would like to form part of the shareholders agreement
  • Draft a customised shareholders agreement incorporating the specific requirements
  • Arrange a follow up 1-hour recap to run through any final discussion points
  • Provide the final document for signature by the shareholders

When you check out you may select a quantity of 1 and we will get in touch with a confirmation of what information we will need from you to get started.

Please note we will provide two drafts through this process, one after the initial workshop and a final draft after the follow-up session. If there are further drafts required there will be an additional cost.
