Keeping control of your company and operating within the rules

Obtaining the right advice regarding your company issuing the correct securities is of paramount importance to ensure you maintain control of your company and also to ensure you do not fall foul of the provisions of the Corporations Act or the Australian Securities and Investment Commission Act.

There are significant penalties for directors and officers of companies that breach the myriad of provisions of the Corporations Act in Australia.

At Bell Legal Group, we provide you with advice regarding your corporate structure, your company type, the securities or shares being issued by your company, the classes of shares or securities being issued by your company and the appropriate corporate structure to prepare your company for future growth.
