This document is a template share certificate.
Each shareholder of a company must be issued with a share certificate. The share certificate will outline the number of shares held by that shareholder, and the funds paid for these shares.
A share certificate will usually be evidence of a party’s ownership of shares and must be safeguarded. As this document is a standard template, practitioners will need to review the company constitution, and, if relevant, the shareholders agreement, to determine whether there are any specific requirements for the certificate.
