Articles of Association of a company

July 23, 2019

A company’s articles of association is a document which, along with the memorandum of association, forms the company’s constitution, defines the responsibilities of the directors, the kind of business to be undertaken, signed by the subscribers to the memorandum of association, and prescribing regulations for the company.

A standard article of association is required to;

(a) be printed;

(b) be divided into paragraphs numbered consecutively; and

(c) be signed by each subscriber of the memorandum of association in the presence of at least one witness who shall attest the signature.

(4) bear the same stamp duty as if they were contained in a deed.
