Reserving the name for a Canadian company and obtaining a NUANS report – from 75 EUR

When registering a business company in Canada, you have to make sure that the name that you have chosen for your company is available and reserve it with the Canadian registrar. This can be done by use of the so-called NUANS report. This report is necessary when registering federal or provincial corporations in Canada and also when registering a trademark in this country.

The name of the company is not only an important part of its brand but also a unique “signature” or a “call sign” in the state registry. Similarly to other countries, if a name is already used by an existing company, it cannot therefore be used by a new company in Canada.

Moreover, if the name you come up with is consonant with an existing company name, or if it sounds rude or incomprehensible, it can also be declined by the registrar.

Another thing to be avoided is delay in the name reservation. While you are collecting the documents necessary for company registration in Canada, somebody may take the name you want and you will have to make changes to all the documents you have prepared.

To avoid this kind of unpleasant situations NUANS report has been introduced whose task is to make certain that the name is unused and then reserve it for the company until the moment it is registered in Canada.

You can obtain a NUANS report remotely by applying for it to us at [email protected].

You have to have this report when registering federal or provincial corporations and trademarks in Canada.

After you cover the cost of the service, we check your company name with the Canadian registration agency and reserve it for you for 90 hays in case it is not taken. Thus, you can spare yourself one worry while preparing the documents for registering a non-resident corporation in Canada. Especially given the fact that with our assistance companies are registered much faster in Canada then in 90 days.

The name can be reserved for not more than 90 days. If you have not submitted the registration documents within this period of time, you will have to request a new NUANS report.

We offer you the possibility to check several company names at a time. If the preferable name is taken, or if the expert believes there is a good chance that it may be declined by the registrar, we will check other variants of the company name for you.

IMPORTANT! An affirmative NUANS report does not guarantee that the company name will be accepted by the registrar. It only serves as a proof of the fact that no company with such name is registered so far, and reserves this name for you for the period of 90 days so that you can register a corporation in Canada under this name.

Without a NUANS report, your application for company registration in Canada will be rejected.

When should you request a NUANS report? We recommend that you do it at the early stages of document preparation. When you know for sure that the company name that you have invented can be used in Canada, you can proceed with compiling the registration documents. It would also be a good idea to supply us with several variants of your company name in case the preferred one turns out to be taken.
