Background

When should Shareholders adopt Articles of Association?

As an accompaniment to a shareholders agreement between two equal shareholders, the shareholders should also consider adopting Articles of Association which reflect their equal shareholdings.

The shareholders agreement is a private agreement between the shareholders (and often the company as well).  The Articles of Association are filed at Companies House and available to the public.  

Typical matters covered by Articles of Association include provisions relating to:

  • the allotment of additional shares
  • transfers of shares
  • shareholder meetings
  • rights to appoint directors and proceedings of directors
