Corporate Resolution – FREE Template

A corporate resolution is essentially a vote of approval for an important business decision. When a corporation has multiple shareholders and multiple directors, documenting major decisions is crucial. Resolutions don’t have to be overly complicated—at their core, they require just a few key pieces of information, along with appropriate signatures. We provide a free template you can use to document your corporate resolutions.


Free Corporate Resolution Form

Feel free to use our corporate resolution form to document your corporate decisions. This template—like all of our website’s content—is intended for individual use.

Our corporate resolution form is a generic template. If you’d prefer something a little more specific, such as board of directors resolutions or shareholder resolutions, we’ve got you covered there too. Check out our other free resolution templates below:

Why do I need corporate resolutions?

Corporations are subject to a wide range of corporate formalities, including holding annual meetings and keeping corporate records, such as bylaws, meeting minutes and resolutions. Any significant corporate action—such as buying property, taking on debt, or entering into contracts—should be approved with a corporate resolution. Corporate resolutions become a permanent part of the corporate record. Resolutions are internal documents, but note that they can be audited by state agencies or the IRS.

What should corporate resolutions include?

The most important parts of a corporate resolution are a clear statement of the resolution itself and dated signatures that confirm the resolution was in fact agreed upon. Our free template for a corporate resolution includes space for the following information:

  • Your corporation’s name

  • Date, time and location of meeting

  • Statement of unanimous approval of resolution

  • Confirmation that the resolution was adopted at a regularly called meeting

  • Resolution

  • Statement authorizing officers to carry out the resolution

  • Director signatures and printed names

  • Secretary signature and printed name

  • Dates of all signatures
