Ohio Notary Acknowledgement – Corporation

The Ohio notary acknowledgement for a corporation is a notarial certificate used to notarize the signature of a representative who has signed a legal instrument in the name of a corporation. The purpose of a notary acknowledgement is to authenticate the signature of the individual who has signed a document, whether on behalf of themselves or as a representative of a principal. Therefore, when the signed document is brought before a notary public, the notary will need to be able to positively verify the identity of the person who has signed the document and, if necessary, their authority to do so. Once the notary has both confirmed the representative’s identity and verified their signature on the document, they can fill out, sign, and stamp the acknowledgement form.
