    What minutes are needed to be kept for the decisions made by a sole director/shareholder of a Pty Ltd company under commercial law?

    Generally none. However I think there is one the accountant completes as part of the company setup/annual return.

    Hmm, you're right Tim. It says:

    "Even the sole director and member of a proprietary company must keep minutes (a written record) of their resolutions concerning the management of the company. If you are the sole director and member of a company you may pass a resolution by recording and signing your decision."

    What is meant by 'management of the company'? Changes to director, shareholders? Or day to day business decisions?

    I'd expect most sole director/member companies do not keep formal minutes.
