NUANS® Name Searches & Name Reservations

New Business Now.com offers NUANS Searches and Provincial Name Reservations for incorporation and business registration in Canada. NUANS Searches and Provincial Name Reservations are used to identify whether proposed corporate and business names are available for incorporation or business registration by comparing proposed names with existing corporate names, business names and trademarks from government databases.

OUR NUANS SEARCH SERVICE IS THE BEST ON THE NET!
HERE'S WHY....

  • ALL submitted names are screened by an in-house LAWYER prior to processing to determine compliance with the legal requirements of the jurisdiction of incorporation.

  • We conduct a FREE preliminary NUANS search prior to proceeding with the full search on any name.  The pre-screen eliminates proposed names with exact matches before you pay, thereby saving you time and money!

  • NUANS Search results are normally emailed in .pdf format and can be printed for submission to the government immediately upon receipt

ENTRUST YOUR NUANS SEARCH NEEDS TO THE PROFESSIONALS!

Each jurisdiction has its own name search requirements and guidelines. Some jurisdictions require the submission of a NUANS Search prepared by an accredited search house such as New Business Now.com, while others require a name reservation report prepared by a relevant government agency. In all jurisdictions except British Columbia, NUANS Searches and Provincial Name Reservations are valid for 90 days. British Columbia Name Reservations are valid for 56 days.

In the case of federal (Canada) incorporation, we can submit the NUANS Search to Corporations Canada for review by a government examiner. The examiner will provide you with a written Name Decision which will advise whether or not the Government will accept the proposed name for federal incorporation. If the proposed name is rejected, the Name Decision will provide reasons for the rejection. A NUANS Search with Name Decision is highly recommended for all federal incorporations in order to expedite the incorporation process.

New Business Now.com conducts a free preliminary search of each proposed name prior to proceeding with the full NUANS Search or Provincial Name Reservation. The preliminary search eliminates proposed names with exact matches before you pay, thereby saving you time and money!
