What is a Board Resolution?
The decisions made by the Board of Directors at a meeting are documented in a document called a board resolution. It’s a legal document that lists the corporate officers and how many votes each officer has on a certain issue pertaining to the company’s well-being. In it, the minutes of the board meeting are meticulously recorded. It is typically certified by the meeting’s designated chairman and signed by all members of the board in attendance.
Importance of Board Resolution
One who holds the position of director in a firm is given substantial authority in the management of that company. Even if they were elected by shareholders, the Board of Directors poses a threat to those investors who put their trust in them if they start making bad decisions or favor their own interests over those of the company. The share price will suffer as a direct result of poor business decisions. Directors have obligations that are designed to safeguard shareholders’ interests, and one structure that meets this need is a board resolution. As a result, board resolution is also important for getting legal registrations such as GST Registration or Cancellation of GST Registration.
