Plastic waste management
HAZARDOUS waste management
A shareholders’ agreement is a legal document that outlines the rights, obligations, and expectations of the shareholders of a company. It is an agreement among the shareholders of the company and can cover a wide range of topics such as share ownership, voting rights, dividend policies, management and control of the company, transfer of shares, dispute resolution, and more.

Overview of Shareholders Agreement
A shareholders’ agreement is a legal contract that outlines the relationship between shareholders in a company. It covers aspects such as the rights and responsibilities of shareholders, the allocation of shares, business operations, and decision-making processes.
The main purpose of a shareholders’ agreement is to ensure that all shareholders are treated equally and have a say in important decisions, particularly when new shareholders are added. Minority shareholders benefit the most from this agreement, as it provides them with protection from potential abuses by majority shareholders and gives them a voice in crucial decisions.
Advantages of Shareholders Agreement
|Protection for Minority Shareholders||A shareholders’ agreement provides protection and equal rights to minority shareholders, ensuring they are not marginalized in decision-making|
|Facilitates Share Purchase||A shareholders’ agreement allows minority shareholders to purchase shares from majority shareholders, providing equal opportunities to all shareholders|
|Control and Decision Making||Shareholders can set rules and guidelines to govern the company, including modifying or changing them, ensuring they have legal association with the company|
|Protects Shareholder Positions||Shareholder’s agreements ensure that the positions and roles of shareholders within a company are protected|
|Shareholder Restrictions||The agreement can include restrictions on certain matters that can be decided only by shareholders, giving them more control over the company’s direction|
|Confidentiality||Unlike the articles of association, which are made public, the terms of a shareholder’s agreement are private, ensuring confidentiality|
Step 1: Determine the scope of the agreement: This includes identifying the shareholders involved, the company’s objectives, and the overall purpose of the agreement.
Step 2: Define the rights and obligations of shareholders: This includes outlining the rights of shareholders, such as voting rights, the right to dividends, and the right to transfer shares. It also involves defining the responsibilities and obligations of shareholders.
Step 3: Establish the decision-making process: The agreement should define how decisions will be made, including voting procedures, quorum requirements, and dispute resolution mechanisms.
Step 4: Address share transfer restrictions: The agreement should set out any restrictions on the transfer of shares, including pre-emptive rights and tag-along and drag-along provisions.
Step 5: Set out provisions for shareholder exits: The agreement should address the circumstances under which a shareholder can exit the company, including selling shares, voluntary resignation, and expulsion.
Step 6: Include confidentiality and non-compete clauses: The agreement should include provisions to protect confidential information and prohibit shareholders from engaging in activities that compete with the company.
Step 7: Consult with legal experts: It is highly recommended to seek the guidance of legal experts to ensure that the shareholder’s agreement complies with all applicable laws and regulations.
1. Articles of Association of the company
2. Memorandum of Association of the company
3. Company’s PAN card and registration certificate
4. List of shareholders with their contact information and shareholdings
5. Identification proof of all shareholders (such as Aadhar card, passport, or driver’s license)
6. Address proof of all shareholders (such as electricity bill, phone bill, or bank statement)
7. Latest audited financial statements of the company
8. Minutes of the board meeting or shareholder meeting where the decision to create a shareholder’s agreement was made

FAQ's Shareholders Agreement :-
The principles governing the enforceability of a shareholders’ agreement and the remedies available in the event of a breach will frequently be the standard norms of contract law.
By a document that has been signed by all parties, the shareholders agreement may be modified. In contrast, a resolution enacted with a 75% majority is typically sufficient to modify the Constitution.
The corporation and each shareholder should both sign or execute the shareholders agreement. Keep in mind that the legal requirements for an individual and a firm to sign papers vary, so be sure to read the execution blocks carefully and sign the appropriate one.
A shareholders’ agreement typically does not need to be filed with Companies House. It is a private agreement distinct from the company’s bylaws, which must be registered with Companies House.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
