Making a Corporate Resolution

  • What is a Corporate Resolution?

    A Corporate Resolution is the record of any major decision made by shareholders or a board of directors during a meeting. Corporate Resolutions can cover a wide variety of actions. Commonly, they are written when a new member of board is voted in, but they can also be used when the company decides to hire employees, sell shares, purchase an existing patent, or when any other big decisions are made. They serve as important compliance documents and give your company a concrete record of the choices your directors or shareholders have made.
