The Lawyers at Levy Zavet PC are well-learned in Ontario-based legal services, including Shareholder and Sweat Equity Agreements. Along with financially contributing to a company, one can acquire equity through physical or intellectual work that contributes to a property or business’s prosperity, this is called Sweat Equity. Shareholder and Sweat Equity Agreements can sometimes help a corporation cut-down on start-up costs by offering shares of business stock to the service providers instead of money or financial services. Obviously, a business cannot grow based solely on Sweat Equity, but a Shareholder or Sweat Equity Agreement can provide a great option for a new business starter hoping to better his company’s commercial value.
