Scheduling a formal meeting can be difficult when people lead busy lives. If you are a part of a board of directors or group of shareholders and need to record an official action, and everyone agrees with that action or decision, then a Unanimous Consent can cut to the chase without calling for a meeting.
When to use an Unanimous Consent:
You need to record official actions of the directors and/or shareholders of a corporation that were taken by unanimous consent, rather than as part of a formal meeting.
