MEMART is the abbreviation for the company incorporation document known as Memorandum and Articles of Association, which is the part of your incorporation documents that reflects the structures, governance, objectives, shareholding, rights and obligations of the company and its members.

A company’s MEMART can be amended from time to time to include or remove a particular objective(s) or terms. To do this, there must be a special resolution passed by the board of the company stating and accepting the changes to be reflected on the MEMART. A new MEMART would be drafted to include the part which was amended or added to it. The company is required to pay the Statutory stamp duty fees online for each copy of the new MEMART after an assessment has been done by an officer of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). After which the documents are to be stamped at the nearest stamp duty office (Federal Inland Revenue).
