Once an LLC is established, one of the company's first resolutions will be to define its banking activities. In this sense, an LLC Banking Resolution defines each member of the LLC's privileges, obligations, and roles as relates to the company's bank account.
An LLC Banking Resolution is used to open the LLC's bank account. It also serves as proof of authority to financial institutions.
An LLC Banking Resolution is a formal document needed for an LLC to establish a bank relationship. It defines the representatives who are authorized to manage the company's bank account, including their roles and privileges.
Depending on your state, an LLC Banking account may also be known as:
Limited Liability Company Banking Authorization Resolution
Corporate Resolution to Open Bank Account
You may need an LLC Banking Resolution to open a business banking account. This document defines the relationship with the banking institution and persons within the company who can access the account.
Other reasons for an LLC to have a business banking account are the ease of tracking business expenses, audit prevention, and financial record-keeping (including reserves and the payment of taxes). Opening a business banking account also makes your business more credible and professional. For instance, your customer can write a check in your LLC's name rather than your personal name.

An LLC Banking Resolution needs to be signed by the authorized signatories. They are the only representatives allowed to access the company's bank account. Representatives are usually the president, vice president, CEO, treasurer, or members of the management.
After reviewing the document, your LLC Banking Resolution should be certificated if the bank requires it. During this process, one or more LLC representatives would be signing the certificate.
Your LLC keeps a copy of the certified resolution in its corporate records book, together with the rest of its official records. It may be presented to financial authorities if so requested. Keep an electronic copy of the LLC Banking Resolution as a backup.
A copy of the resolution is sent to the designated bank, which uses it to open an account and defines the authorized users' list.
