Two Benefits of Corporate Seals
If you have incorporated your business and you may wonder what a corporate seal is and whether it is required. In most jurisdictions the use of a corporate seal is optional, however seals still have valid uses. A corporate seal is an embossing or stamping device which permanently imprints the corporate name and jurisdiction of incorporation on documents. There are two reasons why having a corporate seal for your business is a good idea and ordering one is simple:
- Document Validity – A corporate seal permanently adds your company name and jurisdiction of incorporation to legal documents. If documents ever come into question, you can be more confident of their validity if they have a corporate seal on them. Corporate seals provide a sense of authenticity and mark of identity for a corporation.
- Convenience for Officers – Your corporation's senior leaders and business officers have an easy method to permanently add the corporation's name and jurisdiction of incorporation to documents in addition to their signature.
