Share Transfer Restriction Agreement

If two or more people set up a business and share the common shares equally without a share restriction or an agreement of steadfastness, they may accidentally expose themselves to certain risks. For example, one of the founders may leave the company while still retaining his ownership shares. If other founders succeed in the business, the founder may reappear to claim ownership of the company. In principle, shares can be transferred between shareholders by written agreement and an acquisition of registered shares. The articles of association may limit portability (but do not exclude it); Authorisation requirements can be implemented. Section 83(b) of the Domestic Income Code (IRC) allows a founder to include the shares allocated in his or her personal income tax return at the time of allocation, rather than at the time of unshakability. This protects the founder from an increase in tax debt if the value of the shares increases during the prohibition period. The founder can claim all the shares under the agreement in a single fiscal year. Any increase in the value of the shares may be calculated as a capital gain at the time of the actual sale. Note that Election 83(b) must be made within 30 days of the allocation of the shares.

A company`s articles of association can (and often) impose restrictions on shareholders` ability to transfer shares. The articles of association must therefore be reviewed when a transfer of shares is proposed. The articles of association often contain preferential rights that give existing shareholders a first right to buy the shares of each shareholder who wishes to transfer them in relation to their existing share. Therefore, the transfer of shares that will not be made to existing shareholders will only be possible after receiving an offer at the same price to existing shareholders. There may also be a shareholders` agreement between the shareholders, which governs the transfer of shares. Although common restrictions apply in shareholder agreements, they should be carefully considered and analysed for each transaction and for each round of negotiations of the transaction, as they may trigger other provisions of the agreement or have indirect consequences for shareholders in terms of management structure, profit distribution, non-competition or other similar obligations. Declassification documents are required and must be approved by moiCT. Subject to any restrictions on the transfer of shares in the articles of association, a shareholder of the company may sell or transfer his shares to others. Such a transfer is concluded after the adoption of a decision of the board of directors of the company, the member and the transferee (if applicable), the execution of the share transfer form, the payment of the applicable stamp duty, the notification of transfer of shares / the list of shareholders filed with ACRA and the update of the electronic register of members (for private companies).

Shares can generally be transferred through written agreements between shareholders or third parties, unless (i) there is a «pre-emption» provision in the shareholders` agreement or articles of association or (ii) the company has issued «limited transfer shares» the transfer of which requires the approval of the board of directors. To transfer the participation of a managing partner, the partners of the company must give their unanimous agreement and amend the articles of association of the company. To transfer a sponsor`s participation, the other sponsors must give their unanimous consent and amend the articles of the corporation. For the shares of a limited partnership, they may be transferred or transferred without amendment of the articles. Any transfer of shares to a person or company other than the one mentioned above must be approved by at least half of the shareholders representing at least 3/4 of the capital, including the shares whose transfer is proposed. Shares are generally freely transferable, subject to restrictions such as.B. subscription rights, which may be included in a company`s articles of association. . .
