There are significant legal and regulatory requirements imposed on companies in Australia. In many instances the ultimate responsibility for compliance with those requirements rests with a company's officeholders. It is essential that company directors and other officeholders understand their obligations and the personal liability that can arise where those obligations are not met.
Careful consideration also needs to be given to the internal rules of a company. Disputes can and often do arise over issues such as the appointment and removal of directors and changes in the shareholding of a company. Without a clear agreement between shareholders these disputes can snowball into costly and time consuming court action.
