1. Do I need a company constitution?
All 'no liability' public companies and 'special purpose' companies must have a company constitution. For other companies registered through ASIC, you have the choice to either use the replaceable rules contained in the Corporations Act or draft your own constitution.
2. Why purchase a company constitution when we can use the replaceable rules?
There may be a number of reasons to why you may choose to adopt a company constitution instead of relying on the replaceable rules. Most importantly, is that replaceable rules are basic rules that apply to all companies and may not cover everything your company may need.
In contrast, a constitution allows your company broader coverage and flexibility.
