Corporate Name Searches – NUANS Report
A NUANS (Newly Upgraded Automated Name Search) search is a comprehensive search that compares a proposed Alberta or extra-provincial corporation name or a proposed non-profit name to a database of Alberta and federal corporation names.
- The person who ordered the report uses it to decide whether they should proceed with their proposed name for an Alberta or extra-provincial corporation.
- In the case of a non-profit organization, Corporate Registry will examine the report to decide whether the proposed name can be used in Alberta.
- In most cases, a NUANS report is required for incorporation, amalgamation, name change, or revival of an Alberta corporation or non-profit organization and for registration, amalgamation, name change, and reinstatement of an extra-provincial corporation.
A corporation is an independent legal entity that exists separate and apart from its owners (shareholders). Basically, the corporation acts as a ‘person’.
As a ‘person’, a corporation can:
- Buy, sell and own assets, including land
- Make contracts
- Be sued
You don’t need to be a large business to register as a corporation. A small business with only one owner can register as a corporation.
