Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a shareholder's agreeement?

It is vital to enter into a shareholders’ agreement in order to manage potential risks and disputes that may arise in the future. A shareholders' agreement is a legal contract entered into and agreed upon by all shareholders of a company. The Agreement outlines the original intentions of the parties and regulates the rights, responsibilities, liabilities and obligations of each shareholder.

Does my registered business name protect me from other businesses trading under the same or a similar name?

Registering a business name does not give you exclusive trading rights or ownership over that name and therefore it does not stop another person from registering a similar name. To protect your business name from being used by someone else, you must register it as a trade mark. A registered trade mark then gives you the exclusive legal right to use, license and sell your intellectual asset in Australia.

I am the Director of a Company. Can I be personally liable for the debts of the Company?

A Director has certain duties and obligations under the Corporations Act 2001 that you will need to be aware of, including ensuring that the company is not trading whilst insolvent, which may lead to a director being personally liable for the debts of the company. We recommend that you contact us to ensure that you are aware of the obligations imposed on you as a Director and to discuss how you can protect yourself against potential liability.
