A memorandum of association is a document that regulates the relationship between the company and the outside world. It addresses issues of concern to the outside world such as the name of the company, its official address, the working capital of the company, the type of the company, nature of business and its subscribers.

Memorandum and Articles of Association could collectively be regarded as the constitution of a company. However, where there is a conflict between the two, Memorandum of Association would prevail.
The examples and perspective in this article deal primarily with the United Kingdom and do not represent a worldwide view of the subject.
