New York Notary Acknowledgement – Corporate Acknowledgements

The New York corporate acknowledgement form should be attached to a legal instrument that is signed for a corporation by an authorized representative when a corporate seal has been affixed to the document. Although corporate seals/stamps are no longer required by law, corporations may still use them as they provide added authority when putting legal documents into action. The signer must identify themselves to a notary public, show them the signed and stamped document, and swear that they have the authority to sign on behalf of the corporation.
