Accountant wants to charge $500 to put together a minute book, but it looks straight-forward to me.

I already have most of the required documents in there. Just need additional sections such as meeting minutes, share certificates, etc.

Any opinions on using something like this?

No requirement for an accountant to do this. It's also normally handled by the lawyer that incorporated your company (if applicable).

Otherwise, just do it yourself and save the money.

I actually just made the tabs myself by using index dividers and putting labels on. I recommend the minute book if you are a larger organization that needs to produce your minute book to others but in a small, closely held corporation perhaps it is an unnecessary expense.

Thanks, I googled around and found this:

which is a listing of what's required.

I further googled a couple of entries to see what they should look like and it seems straight-forward.

Some people might think doing the tabs yourself makes one "cheap" but I love saving money. It feels like I am paying myself and I can save the money for something I can't do myself.
