Account Opening Resolution

Managing a company and its affairs is probably one of the hardest things to do. Based on the size and nature of a company, one single decision could impact the entire organisation in several ways, positively or negatively, based on how that particular decision pans out. This is why the shareholders of the company appoint directors (who constitute the Board) to look after and supervise the day to day operations and make relevant decisions as and when required. These decisions are made by passing board resolutions where the relevant issues are brought up during a Board Meeting, and based on the votes; the resolutions are passed.
