What is a memorandum of association?



Can your explain in really simple terms what a memorandum of association is? I think I need to have one to be able to set up a company, but I’m not sure where to get one or what it’s supposed to look like. What is its purpose?



The memorandum of association is one of the incorporation documents provided to limited companies upon their registration at Companies House. This document contains the names of all subscribers (the first shareholders or guarantors of the company) and it serves as their legal agreement to form and become members of that company.
