Shareholders' Agreement for a Private Company Limited by Shares (LTD)

This document can be used by shareholders to agree on certain aspects of how a company will be run and can be used by any company incorporated in the UK. This document is not a legal requirement but can be used by an existing company, or a company which is yet to be incorporated. It can be modified to be used:

  • for private limited companies with any type of share capital (e.g. multiple classes of shares)
  • to contain provisions relating to loans, share issues, share transfers and guarantees
  • to create voting blocks/pacts
  • to agree dividend policy
  • to agree directors, managing director and director salaries
  • to create shareholder lock-in periods
  • to create a right of pre-emption

A Private Company Limited by Shares is different from operating a business as a sole trader or a member of a partnership as it is a legal entity in its own right, meaning it is viewed as a separate entity from its owners, i.e. shareholders. This document should be viewed alongside the company's Articles of Association.

How this document is to be used

Any separate agreements relating to loans, transfers or guarantees which are referenced within the document and incorporated into the contract should be attached.

Where there are multiple classes of shares, multiple shareholders, share issues or transfers, the appendices to the document should be completed with the relevant details of the share capital prior to the agreement, any issues and/or transfers, and the share capital following the agreement.

Then each party should be given a copy of the document so that they can read it. If each party is happy with the agreement it should then signed by each with such signature being witnessed by an independent person.


Any Applicable Law

Companies Act 2006
