Description of Business

Learn more about business descriptions for named Incorporations.

A description of your business is required for named incorporations as part of the name reservation process (learn more about NUANS). While it should be accurate and reflect your current business plans, it does not restrict your corporation in any way. Your business still has the freedom to change over time.

Things to consider including would be a description of your goods, products, or services, and any high-level business activities. For example, Goodlawyer's business description might look something like "An online marketplace where individuals or businesses can hire lawyers to perform legal services. We collect a service fee on transactions rendered over the platform and also have a subscription product where users can get special access to legal services."
