Certificate of incumbency
An incumbency certificate (also known as certificate of incumbency) is an official document issued by a corporation or limited liability company. It lists the names of its current directors, officers, and, sometimes, key shareholders. Simply put, it mentions who holds which positions in the organization. You have to include the incumbency certificate to identify the key people within your company because they are most likely to sign agreements on behalf of the company.
To not get lost, you need to know that Certificate of Incumbency has alternative names as Register of Directors, Officer Certificate, or Secretary Certificate. Now let’s move to its definition.
