As a limited company, it is vital that you ensure that your shareholder agreements are accurate and binding. The shareholder agreement is the contract that regulates the relationship between your company and your shareholders. Most importantly, the shareholder agreement outlines how the company will be run and provides protection if things go wrong.

Why are shareholder agreements necessary?
Without a shareholder agreement in place, any disputes that may arise between shareholders and directors will need to be resolved by relying on the company's articles of association. The shareholder agreement is specifically in place to outline contractual remedies for disputes which the articles may not be able to cover.
Shareholder agreements are crucial in deciding things like who a shareholder sells his shares to when he leaves the company or what happens if a shareholder dies. It also covers details regarding the dividend policy and transferring of shares.
It is good to have terms in place that address and pre-empt issues that could come up not only for peace of mind, but also for the interests of the organisation and the people involved.
