Business Incorporation Lawyers: What You Need to Know

You might wonder what business incorporation in Barrhead, Alberta, means and how it might benefit you as an entrepreneur.

The incorporation of a business creates a separate legal entity that has the same rights as a person, such as being able to own property, borrow funds, make contracts, sue, and be sued.

An experienced business incorporation lawyer from Driessen De Rudder Law Office can guide you through this process and advise you on the most suitable option. Having an understanding of the nuances of your industry allows us to assist you in crafting the necessary incorporation documents.

How To Incorporate Your Business

Choosing A Business Name

It is essential that you give your business a name and register it. This is the name the law will use for your business. It is also possible for your customers to call your business by a different name.

When naming your business, keep these factors in mind:

  • · To prevent confusion, ensure it reflects the product or service you offer by the public
  • · Consider how you want your business to be viewed
  • · Choose something memorable and easy to pronounce

You also need to check whether someone else owns your name as a corporation or as a trademark. This is important because if someone else owns the same name, they can prevent you from using it. Our office is able to do a search at the government registries on your behalf, to ensure that your name is valid.

Sending Forms to the Government

The next step is to register your business with the government. This is an important step, as it legitimizes your business and protects you from potential legal issues. You should also make sure to get a business licence and any necessary permits.

It is also essential, with the assistance of a qualified accountant, to decide how many and what types of shares your company will have, who will own them, and who will be its directors.

Drafting the Company’s Documents

For your company to be incorporated, you’ll need bylaws, resolutions, consents, subscriptions, and issuances.

These documents provide the necessary evidence that your company is legally formed and operates in accordance with applicable laws.

Whether you’re incorporated or looking to incorporate in Alberta, we can help. We know the legal nuances involved in corporate law, so that we can guide you through the process.
