Document Overview

A Share Certificate outlines the shareholder and their respective allocation and ownership of shares within the company. A Share Certificate is a legal proof of registered ownership that is signed between respective parties, including the company’s director. It details the shares that are allocated, the class of the shares and the amount paid for the shares. The Certificate often includes the legal jurisdiction in which the agreement takes place.

Use this Share Certificate if:

  • There is a new shareholder purchasing shares in your business
  • You need to specify the allocation of existing shares. This will involve the amount of shares allocated and the price that was paid for the shares. This is most important when outlining ownership of the business, where two or more business owners own the initial shares in the company.

  • The date on which the shares were allocated and the details of the shareholder
