Introduction:In recent amendments to Part One of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, the legislature established the decision of the meeting as grounds for civil relations to arise. Also, a special Chapter 9.1, dedicated to this legal fact, was introduced to the Civil Code. However, that does not resolve all theoretical and practical issues. Purpose and Objectives:the aim of the article is to specify the legal nature of the decision of the meeting as a legal fact, to analyze new legislation on this subject, to consider the necessity for legislative changes. Methods: methods of analysis and synthesis, comparison and description, methods of formal and dialectical logic are used. Results: the author concludes that decisions of the general meeting within corporate legal relations are always a legal fact. The decision of the meeting is a specific civil transaction, though it is not a civil legal contract. Amendments should be made to existing legislation, including the part where the decision of the meeting is defined.
