A company constitution is a document that sets out the rules and regulations that govern the internal management and administration of a company. It typically includes information such as:

  • company’s name and registered office
  • types of shares that can be issued
  • rights and responsibilities of shareholders
  • powers and duties of the directors
  • procedures for holding meetings and making decisions

You can obtain a copy of a company’s constitution by requesting it from the company directly or by searching for it on the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) website. The constitution is also available for inspection at the company’s registered office during business hours.

The company is also required to provide a copy of the company constitution to any member who request for it.
