Other services offered


  • The choice of a name for a business corporation must be made in accordance with certain basic rules under the applicable laws, and our questionnaire is designed to guide you in this regard.
  • Our basic service consists of checking if the chosen name is not already used by another corporation and is limited to an identical name check in the Quebec Enterprise Register database.
  • Since the corporation and its directors are responsible for the choice of its name, you should really opt for a more thorough name search to ensure that the chosen name will not contain similarities with that of another existing corporation nor will it be confused therewith, and thus receive a complete name search report.
  • The name search is the first step to take PRIOR to the incorporation of a business corporation with a corporate name. The next step will be available in your Scripta account, once the name search service is duly completed and the chosen name is reserved.
  • For more information or more complex situations, please contact  .
  • An assumed name, also known as business name, can also be used to identify the corporation.
