Day 16

Who can sign? Consider who should have authority to sign on behalf of the business. An authority matrix setting out which staff can bind the company to which types or values of contracts is useful in managing staff internally. Bear in mind that an outside party is entitled to rely on the signature of any member of your business who they could reasonably believe is authorised to sign for you – if your staff sign things outside their authority level, you may still be bound.
