Certificate of Incumbency

What is the Certificate of Incumbency?

A Certificate of Incumbency is an official document issued by a corporation or limited liability company that lists the names of its current directors or officers. It is used to identify individuals who are authorized to enter into legally binding agreements or transactions. 

What if I don’t have the Certificate of Incumbency?

You may provide the Certificate of Good Standing instead. It is a legal document that certifies that a company is properly registered with the state, is up to date on all state registration fees and required document filings, and is legally permitted to engage in business activities in the state. In some states, it is called the Certificate of Status or Certificate of Existence. A Certificate of Good Standing typically has an expiration date (When the registration is due to be renewed, or when periodic documents or registration fees are due).
