If your company is planning on doing business in another country, you will need to Apostille the Articles of Incorporation.
The Articles of Incorporation are a set of formal documents filed with the Secretary of State to establish a corporation as a separate business entity. You may hear these documents referred to as a Corporate Charter, Articles of Association, or Certificate of Incorporation.
Most Articles of Incorporation will include:
- Firm’s name
- Street address
- Name and address of the registered agent
- Amount and type of stock to be issued
- Purpose of the corporation
Obtain an Apostille for the Articles of Incorporation
When doing business overseas, you will often need to authenticate your Articles of Incorporation to confirm its legitimacy.
Obtaining an Apostille is a uniformly accepted process certifying the authenticity of a document. This process is recognized by all countries that are members of the Hague Convention of 1961. An Apostille is acquired by the Secretary of State in which the business is established.
If your destination country is not a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, then you must follow the legalization process to authenticate your documents; which involves several more steps, including receiving authentication from the country’s Embassy or Consulate.
