Resolution to Authorize Borrowing on a Line of Credit

Sample Corporate Resolution

A corporate resolution that authorizes borrowing on a line of credit is often referred to a borrowing resolution. This resolution indicates that the members (LLC) or Board of Directors (Corporation) have held a meeting and conducted a vote allowing the company to borrow a specific loan amount. The borrowing resolution states which officers are authorized within the company to borrow and the bank where the company may borrow this specific sum.

It is critical that a company prepares this corporate resolution, as the vote acknowledges that the company will go into debt from borrowing on a line of credit. If the vote does not pass, the borrowing resolution cannot be established and the company will be unable to borrow on a line of credit.
