Without properly drafted corporate minutes, the separate legal entity status of your corporation can be discredited. Ultimately, without corporate minutes, the courts, the IRS, and other taxing authorities can allow plaintiffs, creditors and other entities to sue you personally for debts and actions of your corporation. Request that a board member or staff person review the completed minutes. Some corporations require that the minutes be distributed to attendees for review and edits before distributing the official, signed copies. Reproduce or transcribe the minutes, entering the text in a formatted document that includes headings, numbered or bulleted items, bold or highlighted items of importance and signature lines for the person responsible for preparing the minutes.
