Articlesof Association

Articles of Association, regulations for the management of a company formed and registered under the Companies Acts. They are such as the subscribers to the memorandum of association deem expedient, provided that they do not contravene such memorandum or otherwise infringe the provisions of the Act. They generally contain regulations as to calls, transfers of shares, general meetings, votes of members, powers of directors, etc., and are stamped as a deed. Each member is entitled to a copy on payment of one shilling. A precedent of regulations is given in Schedule A of the Companies Act, 1862.
