Q. Me and 4 other friends staring a company so while filling the form (newyork taxation and finance) - one of our friends
A: Greetings. It appears you would like to know whether you need to include certain information on a document involved in a corporate formation. Whether you do or do not depends on the form and what the form is for. Your inquiry does not sufficiently specify the form and the purpose of the form (other than that it is related to the Department of Taxation and Finance), so it is not possible to provide a proper answer. Please reach out to a good New York attorney and provide them with the details of what you are trying to do and what form you are trying to fill out.
Q. Is my service contract I entered into enforceable or is it null and void
A: Greetings. It appears you would like to know if a contract between a NY company and an out of state company that is unregistered to do business in NY is enforceable. Generally speaking, a contract between two interstate parties is enforceable, notwithstanding registration. A state's licensing or registration requirements for out of state parties are often only to ensure jurisdiction or for some other regulatory reason that does not impact enforceability. If on the other hand a state's licensing or registration requirements are for the specific purpose of protecting in-state parties for a particular reason that goes to enforceability, then of course the contract with an unlicensed or unregistered party would not be enforceable. An attorney would look into the regulatory reasons behind a requirement before providing guidance to a potential client. ... Read More
Q. Can you purchase shares of a private Company on the Secondary Market but NOT disclose the purchase to the Company?
A: Greetings. It appears you would like to purchase shares of a non-public company. A purchaser who meets the SEC definition of a qualified purchaser may buy shares of a non-public company. Often brokers are required to facilitate the purchase. Due diligence is also required. During the due diligence process, certain information would be reviewed, such as stock sale restrictions or protections. These may include a "right of first refusal" giving the non-public company the right to first purchase the stock before the investing purchaser. If such restrictions do not exist, then the purchaser is free to buy the shares. All purchasers should want their purchases recorded with the company to ensure their shareholder rights. Please contact a good New York lawyer for further information. ... Read More
