Articles of Association or Incorporation associated with the Japanese commercial registry at the time of a Company’s incorporation need to be notarised by a notary public. This is to eliminate the risk of arbitral changes to the Articles of Association or Incorporation. As Articles of Association or Incorporation are documents prepared by private companies and organizations, etc., they are for the most part of a private nature, however, upon obtaining notarisation by a notary public they gain to some extent public document status. Samurai Translators shall issue a Certificate of Translation with translations of Articles of Association or Incorporation which have been notarised by a notary public.
