Business Law Lawyers help your corporation keep the records of Minutes and Annual Reports of Business in West Palm Beach, FL
Any company that is publicly traded is required by state and federal law to not only report information to their shareholders, but thoroughly document information pertinent to shareholders. Every business must maintain a formal record book and a well-maintained record book can make all of the difference when it comes to litigation, shareholder disputes and even tax issues. The Law Offices of Kelley & Fulton understand the importance of these critical records. Our attorneys can ensure your company complies with the state and federal regulations and pleases its shareholders.
Corporations are required in all states to hold a shareholder meeting at least once a year. This shareholder meeting must be adequately documented using meeting minutes. Also, the annual meeting must include financial statements or some form of an annual report to be released to shareholders. Annual meetings are highly complex and not as simple as they may seem. Publicly traded corporations have even more requirements they must fulfill by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Therefore, most corporations turn to the assistance of an attorney. The Law Offices of Kelley & Fulton can help your corporation keep accurate minutes to fulfill your state and federal requirements.
