Where there is a Sole Director company and the company is being appointed as trustee of a Trust, this is the formal Minute recording the company's agreement to act as trustee of the specified trust.
(For a company which is not a Sole Director company, see our related template.)
This Minute of Sole Director's Resolution for Appointment As Trustee also records acceptance of the Settlor's cheque and records the decision to open a specific bank account with a nominated bank.
It is most prudent for a person who is a Sole Director to have a current valid will. If there is no director of a company, the company may well become unable to operate. Section 201F of the Corporations Act 2001 sets out the special rules for the appointment of directors for single director/single shareholder proprietary companies on the death of an intestate sole director, however the outcome of this process may not necessarily be in the best interests of the company - for more information see ASIC Publications/Information Sheet 73 "the importance of sole company directors/shareholders of having a will" on the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) website at www.asic.gov.au.
The Minute of Sole Director's Resolution for Appointment As Trustee attaches the following related materials:
1. Information about minute of directors resolution for when acting as trustee of a discretionary trust
2. Checklist when acting as trustee of a discretionary trust
3. Checklist for establishing a discretionary trust
