Based on our experience as corporate lawyers, we have encountered cases where directors and designated shareholders are appointed without written proof of the agreement and the beneficial owner relies on an oral agreement or gentlemen`s agreement with the candidate. When registering a private company, there are a number of laws that are important to do well. This includes, for example, the designation of the roles of the director and the shareholder. This information is known to the public and could therefore lead to problems if the shareholder wishes to remain anonymous. The designated shareholder may only take legal ownership of the shares by name, which was specified under The appointment by the deceased shareholder, in the scenario of negligence of a person who is entitled to shares according to the will of a deceased shareholder. The designated shareholder means the holder of shares on behalf of another person or a beneficial owner or the original holder of shares. The appointment is a mandate given by a shareholder to assign legal title to the shares to a described person by whom the shares are transferred after the death of a shareholder or the original holder of the shares. A candidate is a person described in this mandate. The most common way to set up a registered shareholders` agreement is for the nominee to declare their confidence in the shares to your advantage and sign a declaration of trust.
Although there are other ways to achieve this, such as. B, the use of call option agreements or loan agreements, these are more complex and better suited to countries that do not recognize the concept of trust or prohibit the use of nominee structures. Although we have sought advice on the application structures by entrepreneurs in the following scenarios: The nomination can be submitted in writing to the company in the prescribed form at any time during the mandate. It can even be repealed or amended at a later date by submitting a mandatory form. The effect of a mandate given by the shareholder applies from the date on which the company receives it. The designated shareholder has no advantage because the economic shareholder has until the life of the original economic shareholder. The candidate enjoys the same rights and responsibilities as the original shareholder once he has shares. In the declaration of trust, you usually receive commitments from the nominee to respond only to your instructions, to transfer the shares to you immediately at your request, and to be liable to you for all rights and benefits on the shares. .
