Corporate and LLC Kits
- Why Do I Need a Kit?
Our professionally designed corporate kits and LLC kits allow you and your clients to protect and organize your LLC and corporate records. Since corporations are required to retain certain documents such as minutes for shareholders' and directors' meetings, corporation accounting records, and document major corporate resolutions, our corporate binders provide the perfect method to organize and store the above-mentioned important documents. Furthermore, our LLC and corporate kits contain necessary documents and items one would need to facilitate the aforementioned organizational formalities and the continuous process of maintaining corporate and LLC records.
- What is the Difference Between the Various Types of Kits?
Our kits come in two basic formats- an “all in one” type where the minute book contains all components, including the certificates and seal, and a second “box” type where the minute book, certificates and seal are kept separately in a two-piece, gold stamped legal size box.
Our kits are available in a variety of styles and colors. All corporate kits contain sample forms of bylaws and minutes, index tabs, a personalized corporate seal, various corporate forms and personalized stock certificates. All Limited Liability Company kits contain a sample Operating Agreement form, LLC index tabs, personalized membership interest certificates, various LLC forms and a LLC seal.
The price differences between the kits relate principally to the quality of the binder and the style of the certificates used.
