A Preliminary Name search is highly recommended before ordering a NUANS Report. It is the process of searching the database to see whether there are existing exact, or similar names that may conflict with the proposed name. It is included with each NUANS Report order and includes up to 3 varations of the name. We allow for 3 variations in case a conflict is found in the preliminary search process. A Preliminary search report will be provided which shows the search results and outline any potential issues with the name.
Additional benefits of Centro's Preliminary Search
Our search consultants will break down the name by keywords or terms and search them individually, including words or terms that phoenetically sound the same. They will also try different spelling variations to ensure that any and all potentially similar names are found. Many providers only search the name exactly as provided which can miss the slightest variation. We save you time and money by thoroughly searching the first time to avoid the cost of additional searches.

Basic rules to follow when thinking of a name:
All names to be used for a Federal Corporation whether it be a new corporation, or a change of name must be pre-approved by an examiner at Corporations Canada. A Federal NUANS Report must be ordered and submitted with the pre-approval application. Even if the report shows no potential conflicts with the proposed name the pre-apporval is still required. Once approved, a letter is issued by Corporations Canada that contains a Request ID and Confirmation number used to proceed with incorporation or name change process.
