Formation and Management of Companies

The decision on what type of trading entity to use for a business can be influenced by a variety of factors. These include for example: investment issues, liability issues and tax reasons. It is prudent to have obtained accounting, tax and legal advice before proceeding.

Shareholders’ agreements and other investment agreements.

Shareholders’ agreements are agreements that seek to document and regulate the arrangements between investors in a particular company. As such they are critical agreements which require careful, professionally advised consideration of the relevant tax, accounting and legal issues at the outset of any negotiations regarding any shareholder agreement or other investment agreements.
