Significance of China Company's Articles of Association

China Company Registration's Articles of Association
China company registration and formation must follow PRC’s Corporation Law.

The 11th article of the corporation law stipulates that the establishment of a company must formulate its Articles of Association in accordance with the law. The articles of association shall be binding on the shareholders, directors, supervisors and senior managers of the company.

This stipulates the validity of the articles of association. It can be seen that the Articles of Association has great significance in the whole operation of the company.

Distinguish Articles of Association from Shareholders Agreement

Company's Articles of Association, to some extent, can be seen as one form of Shareholders Agreement since its publish requires a resolution through the shareholders meeting or the general meeting of shareholders.

The essential difference between Articles of Association and Shareholders Agreement is the modification.

Shareholders Agreement is the contract. If the contract needs to be amended, the parties to the contract must agree that the contract can be modified, otherwise it cannot be amended. But as a kind of organizational structure setting, the modification of Articles of Association just need two-thirds or more of the voting rights. In this sense, the revision of Articles of Association is more relaxed than the modification of Shareholders Agreement, which is the most essential difference between them.
