Business Name Search What is a Nuans™ Report?
The Nuans report is a 7 page report that provides a listing of similar small businesses, corporations and trademarks to your proposed name. The Nuans databank will accept any name you submit.  There are millions of businesses already established in Canada.

When is a Nuans™ Report required?
The Nuans report is required whenever you are incorporating a business.  The report is specific to the jurisdiction which you are incorporating within. 

What is a preliminary search?
A preliminary search determines if a business name is available prior to ordering the Nuans report. This will identify any conflicts with your proposed business name against existing small businesses, corporations or trademarks within the databank. In the event there are issues with the proposed name, a new name can be provided at no additional cost.

EXAMPLE
You are proposing to incorporate in Ontario  as  ABC HOLDINGS INC.
The preliminary is completed and a similar corporation is found as ABC HOLDINGS LTD.

What is a Nuans report review?
Once the Nuans report is completed, our team reviews the completed report for any business name conflicts.  There may be additional conflicts within the report that did not appear during the preliminary search.  From the preliminary report to the Nuans report, there is the potential for a 3 week delay in results. 

Why are the preliminary search and report review important?

  • removes the potential of requiring multiple Nuans report ordering.
  • provides support to red flag existing businesses, corporations or trademarks that may have similar names to your proposed name
  • assists to avoid your business infringing on another businesses right to an existing business name (if you do infringe on an existing corporate or trademark name, the owner of that business may have the ability to make you change your business name)
