Statutes of a Limited Company

What are the Statutes of a Limited Company?

The statutes of a limited company are a set of rules that are established at the time of incorporating a company. These are internal rules that regulate fundamental aspects of the entity, such as its name, the identification data of the partners, the capital contributed by each of them, the decisions that require a special majority, the distribution of benefits, among others.

In summary, the statutes are the legal framework that governs the operation of the company and establish the basic rules that all partners must follow.

When to use this contract?

These types of contracts must be used from the moment the company is incorporated. That is, when the limited company is created and the entire legal process of registration and establishment is carried out. The statutes are used as a reference and guide for the operation of the company, establishing the internal rules and regulations that will govern the activity of the company and the relations between the partners.

Likewise, at LexDoka we have templates for different types of limited company statutes, depending on how the administrative bodies of each one are constituted:
