Overview

Forming a corporation as a small or mid-size company doesn't mean a sudden switch to cookie-cutter products and impersonal service. For the owner, incorporating spells financial flexibility, tax advantages and limited liability -- in other words, ways to stay ahead in today's competitive economy.

The Corporate Minutes Book addresses small business owners who have formed a corporation and want to make sure it is treated that way. It offers them the answers, advice and forms they need to maintain the legal validity of their corporation before the courts and the IRS. Since minutes are the primary paper trail of a corporation's legal life, the book emphasizes when and how to prepare minutes of meetings. It also explains routine legal formalities such as how to record important business transactions, tackle formal recordkeeping and fill out a Corporate Records Book. The book offers more than 80, ready-to-use resolutions forms, both as tearouts on disk, that enable readers to approve and record the most common legal, tax and business transactions that occur in the life of a small corporation.

Mancuso, an attorney, shows how to hold and document corporate meetings of shareholders and directors, document corporate action taken without a meeting, and approve common ongoing corporate legal, tax, and business decisions. The 111 sample forms--tear-outs and on the disk--include minutes of meetings, written consent to action, proxy, authorization of treasurer to open and use account, approval of lease, approval of bonuses and salary increases, and promissory notes. Designed to help relatively small, privately held corporations do their own legal chores and maintain legal validity. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
