Articles of Association of an Austrian limited company

The Articles of Associaton of an Austrian GmbH (limited liability company) represent its by-laws.

The company’s Articles of Association constitute the core document of the shelf company and rule out the basics of the company such as its name, object of business and how shares can be transferred.

In case the shareholders wish to amend the Articles of Association, a general assembly needs to be convoked. The amended articles of association of the Austrian shelf company are then filed with the commercial court by the company’s director.
