A Maryland corporation notary acknowledgement form is a notarial certificate that certifies the notarization of a legal instrument executed by a representative (president, officer, agent) of a corporation. This certificate must be included at the end of the instrument, as a notary public is not authorized to create one. The legal document can be signed by the corporate representative before bringing it to the notary. Once in the notary’s presence, the representative must identify themselves (unless the notary knows them personally) and make an acknowledgement stating they were not coerced into signing the document. The notary can then endorse the certificate with their signature and official seal.
