Share Sale & Subscription Overview

The share sale agreements provided by  in this section are for the purchase or sale of less than full ownership of any private limited company. 

The templates are suitable for the buyer or the seller as they can easily be adapted to favour either side. In particular, there is a menu of 140 warranties that should protect and reassure any buyer.

A subscription agreement is appropriate to use when new shares are issued to bring in a new shareholder, or increase the holding of an existing one. 

Unlike a share sale, when existing shares owned and registered in the name of a shareholder are being sold, a share subscription involves the company itself issuing new shares to the subscriber, who then becomes a shareholder.

In addition to the sale & purchase and subscription templates, there may be a need to use the templates in the shareholders' agreement section and the company secretarial and administration section.

Detailed guidance notes are provided with each template. Net Lawman offers a money back guarantee if the document is not what you need, as well as a legal review option if you want some professional assistance when you are drawing up your documents.


The documents menus are designed to describe the documents, but please be sure that you check them over carefully to ensure that they do meet your needs. All documents are subject to Net Lawman's Terms and Conditions, which we ask you to read before you purchase any documents.
