The Tennessee Notary Acknowledgement form for a Corporation without a Seal is virtually the same as the notarial certificate for an acknowledgement by a corporation with a seal, only with a slight variation in language. Whereas the notary acknowledgement for a corporation with a seal requires the signatory to recognize the seal which furnishes the legal instrument as that of the corporations, the template attached here specifically includes the language, “and that the corporation (or association) has no corporate seal.” Every other facet is the same; the document recognizes a legal instrument signed on behalf of the corporation by an official with the authority to do so.
