I should just accept it. While you may think it`s great, it`s not for you to decide. From a common sense and ethical point of view, you must accept the customer to accept the offer.

No matter who can make the decision to accept transaction offers, you need to be sure to have a process to get the necessary entries and permissions from all the appropriate people. If it is at the board level, it means a kind of formal vote and delegation of the signature power – which you all have to document correctly in the newspaper. In addition, you can have a very convenient C suite or board of directors, which means you want to read the proposed transaction agreement and balance it with comments or suggestions.
