A shareholders agreement can be used for shareholders to document certain matters that may not be covered in the company’s constitution or which the shareholders wish to vary from the constitution.
It is a contract between the shareholders of a company (and typically the company as well) containing agreed terms as to how the company is to be managed. In our Shareholders Agreement , we will take your instructions as to what it will cover.
The friendly, experienced Docscentre staff can assist, and offer this service using their standard PDF forms.
