Illinois Notary Acknowledgement – Corporation

The Illinois notary acknowledgement for a corporation is used when confirming the authenticity of the signature provided by a corporate representative. For example, if a corporate officer or agent signs an important document on behalf of the corporation, they may need to acknowledge the signatures to prove their validity. This notarization process, known as “acknowledgement,” begins with the corporate representative appearing before a notary public and proving their identity. The notary will be required to check the title of the acknowledging individual to ascertain whether they have the authorization to conduct corporate transactions. If the notary is satisfied with the person’s identity, they will ask the signer to confirm that the signature is, in fact, theirs and that it was given freely. When all notarial duties have been concluded, the notary public will fill out the acknowledgement certificate to authenticate the signature of the corporate representative.
