Adopting a new constitution

A constitution is a governance document that manages a company. A constitution specifies the rules that governs the members, directors, and company secretaries. Typically, a constitution is a document that is adopted prior to the registration of a company with ASIC. A company can adopt a constitution after registration provided the members agree in writing to the terms of the constitution. Companies registered with ASIC can be governed by replaceable rules (also known as the provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 ) or a constitution or mixture of both. A company can alter or adopt a new constitution by:

  • Passing a special resolution.
  • Providing 21 days’ notice to convene a meeting (depending on company type).
  • For the resolution to pass, at least 75% of the casted votes must be in favour.

What are replaceable rules?

Replaceable rules are a basic set of rules for governing your company provided by the Corporations Act 2001. If a company elects to not be governed by a constitution, replaceable rules can be relied upon instead.
