Amendment to Corporation Legal Forms Software
AMENDMENT TO CORPORATE DOCUMENTS LEGAL FORMS SOFTWARE
A corporation is formed by the filing with the Secretary of State the Articles of Incorporation or Certificate of Incorporation. The filing of this document with the State establishes the legal existence of the corporation, but does not set forth the rules and regulations for the operation and management of the company. These rules and regulations are set forth in the corporation’s Code of Regulations and/or By-Laws.
The Code of Regulations is signed by the shareholders and establishes the Directors and the Officer positions, among other items. The By-Laws, signed by the Directors, allow the Shareholders or Directors to create or draft rules and regulations to govern the operations of the business of the corporation in a way that meets the specific needs of the business and the Shareholders.
The Code of Regulations and/or By-Laws can appoint individuals to be Officers or Directors, can dictate how profit generated by the business will be divided among the Shareholders, can require majority or unanimous voting limitations on certain business matters, etc.
There are times when the provisions of the Code of Regulations and/or By-Laws need to be changed or amended. An amendment may be desired by the Shareholders or Directors/Officers of the corporation if the nature of the business of the company changes over time, if new Shareholders are brought into the corporation, if Directors/Officers resign or retire, or if the Shareholders wish to set forth a new or different manner of distribution of corporate profits.
Standard Legal’s Amendment to Corporation legal forms software allows the Shareholders or Directors/Officers of the corporation to amend its governing documents. When making an amendment, the Shareholders or Directors/Officers should be specific in which provisions of the original Code of Regulation and/or By-Laws are being changed, updated or deleted. This is done by referencing the exact language of the section or paragraph of the original documents, then stating the changes to be used going forward. Example paragraphs are provided as a guide to making these revisions.
HOW STANDARD LEGAL SOFTWARE WORKS: A simple introduction and easy-to-read overviews are presented first. A questionnaire follows. Text fields, check boxes and drop-down menus are used to collect your answers, with additional instructions next to each field if needed. As soon as the questionnaire is finished, the final documents are created instantly: just save and print! It’s that easy.

SYSTEM, SOFTWARE AND FILE USE REQUIREMENTS:
Standard Legal software is PDF-based and works on virtually all Windows, Apple, Macintosh, Android and Linux-based PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
Using the FREE Adobe Reader (or the commercial Adobe Acrobat), the legal documents are interactive PDFs featuring a questionnaire that converts the information you provide into a finished legal document. It is best to use the most up-to-date version of Reader; see ‘Help > Check for Updates’ in the program’s menu to get the latest version. It is CRITICAL that Reader ALWAYS be used as a stand-alone program or mobile app and NEVER within a web browser.
Links to a downloadable .zip file are presented immediately upon the completion of your order. This .zip must be expanded to access the PDF files. Most computers have an expansion program like WinZip pre-installed; if your computer does not we recommend StuffIt Expander (it’s FREE!). Once the file is downloaded, all documents within can be completed offline, no internet connection required. Read the START-HERE.txt file included in the initial download for more instructions.
Access links to the downloadable .zip file and/or the online forms server for this title are available for one (1) year after the date of purchase, upon request. Files downloaded and saved to a device may be used without time limit, but new downloads are no longer accessible one year after the date of purchase. A discount code is available to past customers by email to make a new or updated purchase.
