What is a sole proprietorship and how can Axess Law help?

Going solo? You own the assets, make the decisions, and are liable for the consequences. Your profits are your own and so are your debts. Axess Law helps you determine if a sole proprietorship is viable for you or if you have liabilities that could make incorporation a wiser choice

What documents do I need to change my company name?

Ontario non-profit corporations that opt for a name change can apply for a supplementary letters patent from Corporations Canada. Axess Law business lawyers can help you. Remember to carry these documents to your appointment:

  • two original signed copies of an application for supplementary letters patent
  • two certified copies of a supporting special resolution of your corporation’s members
  • a statutory declaration of an authorized officer, sworn before a commissioner for takings oaths, attesting the board of directors and members passed the resolution
  • and a Nuans name search report (two if a bilingual name is requested).

Who is my minute book for?

Your minute book documents are available to registered or beneficial shareholders or their agents or legal representatives, directors, officers, and creditors upon request. Keeping your documents in an orderly manner makes this task simpler and avoids government penalties you could be charged for not complying.
