Consent within the context of business means express approval, compliance or permission for some act, decision, or purpose. Consent obtained through coercion, fraud, or undue influence is invalid.
A Consent utilised in relation to a company is a signed document authorising the appointment of a director(s), public officer or secretary. For example; when appointing a new director, he or she is required to sign a Director Consent. When a company is newly incorporated, the shareholder(s) will sign an application for shares and should sign a member consent.
