Common Seal From Adams Rubber Stamps Melbourne
What are common seals? A common seal, also known as company seal or corporate seal is an official mark used by an organization. It signifies the unique identity of a particular company. Common seals are mainly used by companies in common law
jurisdictions or in certifying legal documentation.
While the passing of the Company Law Review Act 1988 removed the requirement which mandates companies to have a common seal, companies established prior to 1988 still comply as mandated by the company’s constitution.
Although no longer a legal requirement, many companies today still choose to use a common seal for its benefits. For example, a common seal can give more authenticity to documents for people unaccustomed with the Australian way of executing documents. If an organization has several overseas customers, having a common seal is an effective way of showing legality and legitimacy.
To have one’s common seal imprint, you need to have a stamp. This stamp is uniquely designed to create an imprint upon paper and is used by government offices, companies and notaries public to indicate that the document is genuinely carried out, accepted or witnessed since the seal is exclusive to the company.
Common Seals standard format is round and includes the full company name, followed by the abbreviation for “Australian Company Number” A.C.N. together with the company’s nine digit number.
