Corporate Minute Books
Often underestimated as outdated, the Company Minute Book may be the dinosaur that one day saves the company. Minute Books house the legal documents that support the company’s standing as an entity separate from its owner – a separation known as the Corporate Veil. It holds all formation documents, bylaws or operating agreements, a record of meetings and key decisions by its Board and Shareholders, and records all stockholder purchases and sales of shares. Licenses, permits, and annual state or local reports or statements are often included in the corporate record book.
Even in our digital world, Auditors still request to see signed original documents in hard copy and the original Minute Book to verify the accuracy and legitimacy of the organization. American Startup offers both virtual and hardbound company minute books that may be customized with the company name, logo, and tagline.
