A NUANS ® report is a search completed and used to compare proposed corporate, business or trademark names with existing.
To incorporate a business, a corporate name search report is required by the Federal and the Provincial governments. These reports list any similar or possibly confusing corporation names, business names and trademarks that already exist in the relevant databases. Most jurisdictions require a copy of the report to be submitted along with the Articles.
In the case of a business name registration, a NUANS® report is not required, a pre-check is strongly recommended.
A name search report expires after 90 days. Firms wishing to incorporate federally can benefit from ESC’s NUANS Real Time Service.
