Osakkeenomistajien yksimielinen päätös (englanniksi)

Päätöksenteko ei edellytä aina kokousta

Yksimieliset osakkeenomistajat voivat päättää yhtiökokoukselle kuuluvasta asiasta myös yhtiökokousta pitämättä. Päätöksenteko yhtiökokousta pitämättä edellyttää sitä, että jokainen osakkeenomistaja hyväksyy poikkeamisen yhtiökokousta ja kokouskutsua koskevista muotosäännöksistä.

Yksimielisetkin päätökset on dokumentoitava

Osakkeenomistajien yksimielinen päätös on dokumentoitava ja arkistoitava kuten yhtiökokouspöytäkirja. Erityisesti yksimielisyysvaatimuksen vuoksi on tärkeää, että päätöksistä on todisteena laadukkaat asiakirjat. Ne antavat samalla ammattimaisen kuvan yrityksen johtamisesta esimerkiksi yrityskauppoja ajatellen.

Asiakirjamalli, joka muuntuu valintojesi mukaan

Sopimuskoneella voit laatia allekirjoitusvalmiin asiakirjan osakkeenomistajien yksimielisestä päätöksestä parhaimmillaan hiirenklikkauksin. Sopimuskone sisältää yritysjuridiikan ammattilaisten laatimat mallisisällöt kymmeniin eri päätöksentekotilanteisiin aina osakeanneista optioihin ja hallitusvalintoihin. Tämän asiakirjamallin sisältö on englanniksi. Sopimuskoneessa on erikseen tarjolla myös suomenkielinen malli.

Sopimuskone kysyy sinulta valitsemiisi asiakohtiin liittyen jatkokysymyksiä, joiden pohjalta se muotoilee sisältöjä tilanteeseesi sopivaksi. Samalla se ohjeistaa sinua eri kohtien merkityksestä. Kysymyksessä ei ole siis yksittäinen pohja tai lomake, vaan avustava teknologia, jolla laadit asiakirjasi helpommin.

Ketkä allekirjoittavat osakkeenomistajien yksimielisen päätöksen?

Jos osakkeenomistajia on useampia kuin yksi, vähintään kahden heistä on allekirjoitettava päätös. Suositeltavaa on usein silti, että kaikki osakkeenomistajat allekirjoittavat päätöksen, jotta kaikkien osakkaiden yksimielinen suostumus voidaan varmuudella todistaa.

Unanimous Shareholder Decision

Alternative to meeting

Shareholders who are unanimous may also decide on matters belonging to the general meeting without holding a general meeting. Making a decision without holding a general meeting requires that every shareholder approves the deviation from the formal requirements concerning the general meeting and the notice of meeting.

Decisions must always be documented

Unanimous decisions by shareholders must be documented and archived similarly to the minutes from the general meeting. The requirement of unanimity makes it particularly important that high-quality documents are available as evidence of the decisions. They also give a professional impression of the company’s management during investment negotiations, for example.

Create your documents with a click of the mouse

Sopimustieto allows you to create a document regarding a unanimous shareholder decision, ready for signing, with as little as a few clicks of the mouse. In Sopimustieto, standard statements developed by experts in business law change according to the choices you make.

Sopimustieto’s templates are based on the Limited Liability Companies Act

Our document template takes into account the limitations set by the legislation on the operation of limited liability companies. We offer standard clauses for dozens of scenarios, such as amending the articles of association, return of capital from the invested unrestricted equity fund and the distribution of dividends. On the other hand, you can freely modify the contents of the document to suit your needs. This is not a traditional, single document or form template; it is a new technology that contains the terms and standard contents of thousands of different templates.

Our versatile document template includes standard content for more than 20 different decision types

Skip the unnecessary paperwork

With Sopimustieto, the parties can use a smartphone or computer to sign your documents. Your document is automatically archived on your Agreement Account, making pens, printers and folders unnecessary.

Who needs to sign a unanimous shareholder decision?

If there is more than one shareholder, at least two of them shall sign the decision. Nevertheless, it is generally recommended that all shareholders sign the decision in order to ensure the unanimous consent of all shareholders with a degree of certainty.

How do I use Sopimustieto to draft a decision document?

  1. At the start of the template, select what the shareholders are deciding on (e.g. authorising the board to decide on a share issue).

  2. Point by point, Sopimustieto will ask you further questions, based on which the automation will formulate the texts for your document (e.g. in the case of a share issue authorisation, the maximum number of shares issued, the validity period of the authorisation, whether the authorisation covers directed share issues)

  3. At different points, Sopimustieto will give you advice based on the Limited Liability Companies Act regarding what shareholders should take into account in their decision-making (e.g. that in a private limited liability company, a share issue authorisation will remain in force for an indefinite period unless a separate decision is made to the contrary)

  4. Once the decision document is complete, the parties of your choosing will sign it electronically using their smartphones or computers

  5. The document is automatically archived on your company’s agreement account which you can instantly access on your computer or phone
