Shareholder Forms

Download these customizable shareholder agreements, share purchase and sale documents, and shareholder resolutions for your company.

As owners and stakeholders in a company, the shareholders have a responsibility to ensure that the board of directors is acting in the best interests of the business, and to attend (in person or by proxy) and vote their shares at every general and special meeting of the company.

Every corporation with more than 1 shareholder should consider putting a written Shareholder Agreement in place to clarify such things as the make-up of the board of directors, the procedure for a cash call, what happens if a shareholder cannot meet the cash call, rights of first refusal for the shares of an exiting shareholder, and other matters which would materially impact the structure, organization and management of the corporation.
