Format of Board Resolution for Authorisation to Sign Agreement

In the course of business, a company enters into agreements with various parties, which can be another company, or a partnership firm, or a proprietorship concern, or even with an individual, etc. In order to sign and execute these agreements, a company official must have the necessary authorisation. 

Generally, the Managing Director or Whole-time Director(s) or Senior Executives are authorised to sign the agreements on behalf of the company, although any other employees can be authorised for this purpose.

Common Authorisation: Some of the Directors/Employees are assigned with a common authorisation to sign all the agreements or some type of agreements viz. commercial contracts, vendor contracts, etc. These authorisation are generally given at the time of their appointment itself and sometimes these authorisation are given during their employment through a board resolution.

Specific Authorisation: In some cases, the board of directors can also authorise any director or official of the company to sign a specific agreement with a specific party on a certain case by passing of a board resolution.

The following is a template of board resolution for authorising an official to sign an agreement.
