Free Sample California Corporation Bylaws

Corporation bylaws are the internal rules that govern the operation and duties of a company and its officers and directors. Bylaws are essential to keeping a corporation active and set forth the operating rules of the corporation.

You may download a sample copy of Corporate Bylaws, with disclaimers, below.

SunDoc Filings has had sample California corporate bylaws created by a licensed attorney. We recommend that you seek legal advice in the preparation of your bylaws, as this is a template that should be tailored for each individual company. We provide these forms as a convenience to our customers and to help as a guideline in drafting your own bylaws. They are designed to give the shareholders, directors, and officers the best protection and management structure.

If you need to form a corporation, please go to our California Corporation page for details. We will walk you through the process and act as your liaison with the Secretary of State office in Sacramento, CA.

We also provide 24 hour filing service in California. Our easy-to-use ordering system allows for frequent filers to "upload" already prepared documents, saving you valuable time.

For a Limited Liability Company, they are called an operating agreement. Sample bylaws are provided when you order a corporate or LLC kit.
