Business Solicitors FAQs
I have formed a Limited Company with my best friend do we need a Shareholders’ Agreement?
There is no mandatory requirement for a Shareholders’ Agreement and Limited Companies can run perfectly well without them if the parties involved are able to agree on all matters going forward and if their interests and vision for the Company stay constant.
However a Shareholders’ Agreement allows the stakeholders in a Company to lay down boundaries and ground rules between each other that Company Law will not do by default.
A Shareholders’ Agreement will allow for the parties to provide additional degrees of protection between them for example an agreed cash limit.
After which the unanimous consent of all directors is needed to spend it on behalf of the company or there can be a right of pre-emption agreed so that if any shareholder wishes to leave the remaining shareholders have a right of first refusal in relation to the outgoing shareholders shares, by way of a couple of examples.
I have just started up a new business is it worth having terms and conditions?
Our view is that almost every business at any time can benefit from having standard terms of business, as the benefit of having clarity in commercial relationships with customers and suppliers is potentially huge in terms of the minimising the risk of litigation.
Where the bargain agreed are unwritten and ambiguous and open to numerous interpretations retrospectively, as opposed to a clear set of written agreed rights and obligations that can be more easily enforced and therefore less likely to be contested in the first instance.
Can I have a Partnership without a Partnership Agreement?
Yes, in fact two or more people engaging in business together whereby they agree to share profits and losses are deemed to be a Partnership unless they regularise their relationship in another format for example by trading through a Limited Company or Limited Liability Partnership.
However the relevant issue is what are the repercussions if you are Business Partners but you do not have a Partnership Agreement? The answer is that the relationship will be governed by the default provisions of the Partnership Act 1890, and there is a risk that this may not be what one or more of the Partners would have wanted or would have accepted if they had known for example regardless of initial contributions on dissolution all parties are deemed equally entitled to Partnership assets (if any) which can cause grave injustice for example when one party puts in significantly more than the other at the outset.
Under a Partnership Agreement matters such as rights to Partnership capital in pre agreed proportions is one of many matters that can be expressly pre agreed and settled.
