This form enables you to prepare a set of rules for a FairShares V3.0 enterprise to register under Company Law. If you want to create rules for associations, cooperatives or partnerships, please use a different form. The process normally takes 10-20 minutes depending on your readiness.
Information about default values in earlier versions of FairShares is given in the notes to help you understand the choices you have in V3.0.
Starting a FairShares enterprise is treated as "a substantial and lasting contribution to the promotion, dissemination, development or administration of the FairShares Model and/or FairShares Association". This means you will meet the association's qualifying criteria for User Membership if you start a company using the rules you generate.

You do not have to pay anything - this is a free service. The service guides you through the process of configuring the FairShares Model to fit your needs. The answers you give will be used to generate your FairShares Company rules. You can request a Word Document (free of charge) or use a 'checking service' (for a fixed fee). The 'checking service' pays for a member of the association to read your rules, add review comments, and share an editable version with you.
More information about free and paid services is provided at the point of submission.
