Most decisions beyond the normal day-to-day running of a business will require a resolution. These also need to be passed for any decision which affects the constitution or rules of a company. Examples include:
- Appointing company directors;
- Changing directors' powers;
- Changing the name of a company; or
- Changing the share structure.
The company articles will normally state if a resolution is required for a certain decision and may also determine the type of resolution needed (eg ordinary or special).
