Upon registration and incorporation at ADGM, entrepreneurs are requested to draft an Article of Association (AoA).
Overall, an AoA can be understood as a user's manual for a company: it specifies the company's operations and purpose.
While the content and terms may vary by jurisdiction, AoAs include the company's name, purpose, share structure, and organization.
An AoA typically highlights a range of procedures in running the company and accomplishing necessary day-to-day tasks, including the process & metholodogy for procedures such as appointing directors, setting shareholder meetings, or handling of financial records.
Use ADGM's template for a Private Company Limited by Shares as a guide to build your own AoA as you apply for registration and incorporation:
