As part of a new series of articles providing guidance on some of the key issues affecting Irish business, John Given and Daragh Connolly of KPMG Law, in collaboration with Practical Law, have prepared a Practice Note (“Note”) outlining how to run an effective board meeting for a private limited company (“LTD”) in Ireland.

This Note considers, among other things, how the board of directors may take decisions, how the management of a company is delegated to the board of directors and directors’ resolutions in writing. It also considers the process of calling board meetings, the role of the chairperson, how voting is conducted at a board meeting, and the quorum needed to hold one. Finally, the Note looks at what records must be kept, who must keep it, the form it must take, retention periods, minutes as evidence and the right to inspect minutes.
