Certificate of Incorporation

This article describes the certificate of incorporation document and how you can access it on Savvi.

Signatures Required:

Incorporator (Company Signatory)


The state issues a stamped certificate of incorporation (or, depending on the state, articles of incorporation) to a corporation's incorporator to verify the entity's formation. This document (often called your company's "charter") becomes your company's primary corporate organizational document —certifying the company as a legal entity and establishing the classes of equity that your company is authorized to issue, together with any rights that attach to those classes of equity.

For an LLC, this document is typically referred to as a certificate (or articles) of formation or organization.
