The circumstances of your withdrawal may affect the price you have for the sale of your shares. This advice obviously covers only a few of the topics you need to consider, as other issues may include competition, restrictive agreements, confidentiality and pension and benefit rights.

A shareholder pact can distinguish between “good leavers” and “bad leavers.” Good graduates may be those who leave the company for health reasons or because the company lays off that person. To recognize a longer period of welding capital, the shareholders` pact may also include those who choose to resign after a number of years as outgoing bonds. How do you avoid the problem of shareholders leaving? There are some answers that we explain below. If you resign as a company director, but also own company shares, you need to define what you have to do with your holdings. Your shareholder`s agreement will generally describe the process you need to follow when selling your shares. Once you have found a buyer for your shares, you or the company should create the corresponding sales documents. The company is expected to update its registrations and ASIIs.

In the meantime, the ex-employee or director retains all of his or her shareholder rights. Shareholder rights include the right to dividends, a share of the capital on z.B, a sale and voting rights of practical importance.
We find that voting power creates problems with the management of the business if the incumbent chooses to persist. And they do it a lot. “Bad leavers” are often defined as those who resign in a short period of time or those who violate the terms of their service contract or shareholders` pact. These bad outgoings must then resell their shares to the company for the face value (i.e. the face value of the shares) or the price paid for those shares when they are lower. Tip 2: Organize now, prepare: you need to know if you have a shareholder pact with your co-shareholders? Can you find it? Has it ever been signed? If you have this, you can dictate whether you can sell your shares, to whom, at what price and how long the process could last. A very good reason to check this first is that it can say that if you resign as a director, you have automatically put your shares up for sale. If this is not the case, the position depends on the statutes that will be submitted to Companies House. So you need to know what document applies and how it works before you resign, because you can`t withdraw or delay your resignation or “re-do.”
