this seems american,'So serious are board meeting minutes that they are prescribed in Corporations Code section 7215 as prima facie once signed by the secretary'.

does anyone know if anything similar (law) exists here in the uk.

Section 249 of the Companies Act 2006 prescribes the circumstances under which the minutes of Directors' meetings are evidence.

Is this a company law question? The OP has posted in "trusts/equity/charity".

thanks stoaty/atty.

the charity in question is run by its governing document which is called a reference deed, as well as being governed by charity commission. the deed says once minutes are signed by the chair they are final, or good as evidence type of thing.Just wondered if there is statute that also backs that up.

as minutes are considered final once signed (in our reference deed) if someone in a sense conspired to alter the minutes, saqy with a chair elect what could that be classed as? lets say someone gave an unauthorized loan to a charity they were trustee of. The minutes were changed to say evidence of alleged loan was provided, when it was not.

oh dear.

A company is a company.

You have said that this charity is governed by the terms of a deed. That suggests it is not a company, in which case the Companies Act 2006 does not apply.

Academy schools are set up as a charitable company limited by guarantee. They have to produce a minimum of 3 sets of minutes per academic year (following the maintained sector) which in practice on average is usually double the minimum required. These minutes are a true and correct record of the meeting and are final, subject only in very rare circumstances to factual correction. In addition these minutes must be published for public consumption and they are subject to FOI.
