Resolution to Borrow from a Designated Bank

Sample Corporate Resolution

A corporate resolution that authorizes borrowing from a designated bank helps establish the relationship that members (LLC) or Board of Directors (Corporation) have with the company's banking needs.

Like a corporate resolution authorizing borrowing on a line of credit, a meeting and vote are conducted among members or Board of Directors. This acknowledges the company is allowed to go into debt after borrowing from a designated bank.

If the vote does not pass, a corporate resolution can't be established to borrow from a bank. As a result, the company will be unable to borrow any money.
