Certificate of Incorporation
Your Certificate of incorporation is a legal document (a license) issued by the government that enables the holder of the document to form a company or a corporation. Almost every country has its own version of the document and its own set of procedures and requirements involved in obtaining the document. In the USA, the certificate of incorporation is used as an alternative description of a corporation’s articles of incorporation.
In the Commonwealth, the certificate is just a simple certificate issued by the relevant authority as a confirmation of the valid existence of the company.
