Number of Signatories on a Share Certificate

If you have more than one director, do you legally need to have both directors signing the share certificate or can you just have the one director?

Hi Jen, I’d look in the Company’s Constitution. There should be some guidance with regard to signing documents. I think you will find in most cases where there is more than one director you need two people to sign.


To legaly execute documents they need to be signed by either 2 directors, a director and secretary or if a sole director they must also be the secretary. Section 127 of the Corps Act.
