The Memorandum of Association (MOA) is a legal document that outlines the fundamental information about a company, including its objectives, scope, and relationship with its shareholders. It defines the company's objectives, structure, and powers, and it acts as a reference point for the company's constitution. The MOA must be submitted to the Registrar of Companies during the registration process.
