Customer Question
I'm wondering how to...

I'm wondering how to get an alias. I don't want my real name to be seen as director of a registered corporation.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Canada ontario

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I work for municipal government. People are searching my name and discovering info about my personal ventures. I have a small registered corporation for a small business. I want to close it and start over with another name. I have to use my real name for the municipality.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

So I'm wondering about a legal alias that can be used for starting a new corporation.

You cannot use an alias. You must use your legal name for any legal documentation or legal purposes.

If you are a director it is vital you use your legal name for many different legal reasons that is to protect the public, employees of the corporation if any etc.

I am sorry this is not the answer you were hoping for.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you.
