The bylaws of a Corporation, regardless of the state, will effectively put into writing the operating rules of a company, ranging from the number of meetings for the board of directors all the way to the liability and capitalization of each shareholder. Without this agreement in place, there will be no legal evidence of the ownership of the company or the manner in which the business shall manage it’s affairs, govern it’s employees, or distribute it’s shares. Although this form is not legally required in the state of Georgia, it will show both financial institutions and businesses alike that your company is both legitimate and organized. The state statutes surrounding corporate bylaws can be found in § 14-2-206 of the GA 2014 Code.
