Legal firm Simmonds and Stewart have announced the launch of a free online suite of legal document templates aimed at New Zealand tech companies.
Simmonds and Stewart are involved with a number of early stage tech companies and saw a need to provide assistance with the legal basics. By making these templates freely available on their website, companies will find it easier to stay on top of legal house-keeping.
The first batch of templates addresses initial governance, fund raising and company administration documentation, and are likely to be of particular use to early stage companies. Template employee share option documents are included on the site, which will help tech companies take advantage of the new Employee Share Purchase Scheme rules that come into force under the Financial Markets Conduct Act on 1 April.
Companies can access the documents on Simmonds & Stewart’s website atwww.simmondsstewart.com/templates, using a LinkedIn account to register and log-in. Feedback is also much appreciated!
