Sample Board Resolution for Closure of Branch Office

A company may decide to close any one or more of its branch offices for different reasons, whether the branch office was fully operational or completely non-operational.

While it is understandable that a branch office may be closed because it has not been in operation for a very long period of time, one may wonder why a company will close a fully functional branch. It may happen for several other reasons:
i) Internal strategic decision;
ii) Merger of business with another company resulting in such decision;
iii) The branch is not making enough profit or the branch is in loss;
iv) Shifting of branch to another location for better operational purpose.
v) More management bandwidth is getting spent which can be spent somewhere else for better profitability.

A branch office of a company is opened by taking Board's approval and likewise a branch is closed by obtaining Board's permission as well.
