A Nevada Certificate of Incorporation which is similar to a company’s Articles of Incorporation or Corporate Charter is a document that confirms a Nevada-formed company’s information. The Certificate of Incorporation includes the company’s purpose, corporate name, the name, and addresses of its incorporators, its registered corporate address, the number of shares that will be authorized, and a description of the classes of stock. There may be certain issues that a corporation also wants to include. Some provisions will only be effective if they are in the Certificate of Incorporation.
Each state has its own Certificate of Incorporation form, and you should review the form for Nevada prior to starting your company’s filing process for that state. This very important document is essential to doing business as a corporation. Any business owner can file for their Certificate of Incorporation or authorize someone else to file it on their company’s behalf. With important company documents such as this, if you’re not familiar with the filing process it’s always recommended to have someone who is, file them for you. This article will further discuss the need for Nevada Certificate of Incorporations and how American Apostille & Notary Services can help with their filings.
Now that we’ve established exactly what a Certificate of Incorporation is, many might wonder why a Nevada Certificate of Incorporation Apostille would be needed. A Nevada Certificate of Incorporation Apostille is often needed when doing business with banks that require a certified copy of your Nevada company’s Certificate of Incorporation. In addition to meeting bank requirements, a Nevada Certificate of Incorporation Apostille is needed if your company plans on conducting business outside of its home state of Nevada. This is because your company may need a certified copy of your Nevada Certificate of Incorporation to file for a Certificate of Authority in order to conduct business in other states.
Once established, many corporations eventually start conducting business abroad. If your Nevada-formed company will be conducting business overseas, you will need to provide proof of the company’s existence. A Nevada Certificate of Incorporation Apostille is a one-page document issued under the Great Seal of the State of Nevada by the Nevada Secretary of State. The one-page document or Apostille is attached to a certified copy of your company’s Certificate of Incorporation. The Certificate of Incorporation Apostille will provide proof of incorporation when conducting business in foreign countries. This will also increase your company’s legitimacy as a foreign business partner.
Although an Apostille certifies that your company’s Certificate of Incorporation when presented is an exact copy of the original, please be aware that it does not certify that the contents of the original document are correct. This is why it’s extremely important that corporate documents such as this are completed and filed correctly the first time. The improper completion and filing of your Nevada company’s Certificate of Incorporation can severely affect your business operations.
