Legalising, Apostille of Company Resolutions signed in South-Africa for use outside the borders of South-Africa

Companies in their day to day process undergo many changes and make many decisions. The Company Resolution minutes is a must have a document to keep accurate records. Firstly the Company Resolution can be used as a record keeper of sorts.

It records what a business and its’ board of directors do. There can be elections to pass certain corporate policies, decisions and company actions, etc. All of these examples are part of the formal decision process that a company can go through.

This record is a straight forward type of document. The main reason for the Company Resolution is that it is a document which establishes that an entity resolved to undertake certain actions. Similarly, this certificate is like the Certificate of Incumbency in that it is an internal corporate document.

As the corporation sets out to do business at some point, an officer of the business will need to act on behalf of the entity. The Certified Corporate Resolution is a document that states that certain officers can act on behalf of the entity: It provides rights to particular officers.

One of the most important aspects of working abroad or opening a branch or representative office is the documentation it takes to make a pleasant transition or start more business. Remember that working abroad is different and getting documents organized can be difficult. Main factors that will be looked at will be the specifics listed in your documents, order and consecutiveness of the powers and responsibilities and the proper preparation of all corporate documents. If the target country is recognizing the Hague Convention of 1961 which established a simplified documentation process that many countries use then Apostille is required. The only caveat is that your destination country must recognize this convention. Otherwise, if the country does not recognize this treaty, then consular legalization will be used.
