Companies executing under seal

Here's the answer to the question: “Where do I put the seal?”

Some customers have been enquiring about how to execute under seal. When executing under seal, a corporation should affix the corporation’s seal to the authority and instruction form (A&I).

Corporations not incorporated under the Companies Act 1993 include territorial authorities, incorporated societies and charitable trust boards. These entities each have a governing statute, and are required to execute in accordance with the method of execution prescribed in that particular Act.

When a corporation is required to execute by affixing its seal, the seal should be placed in s4 of the A&I form. If necessary, the confirmation statements under s4 may be amended to suit the needs of the corporation as long as the content of the A&I form is not compromised.
