Shareholder and unitholder agreements
Depending on how your business is structured you may need either a shareholder agreement or a unitholder agreement. A shareholder agreement is used when you have a company structure with shareholders. A unitholder agreement is used when your business has a unit trust, which has people who each hold units in the trust.
A shareholder or unitholder agreement outlines what the rights and responsibilities of the company or unit trust and shareholders or unitholders are. These are important agreements that can protect your business if something unexpected happens and makes sure the rights of shareholders, unitholders and the business are clear, saving you time and money in the future.
