Most Common Yukon Incorporation Questions:


What legal ending should I use?


There is no difference from the legal standpoint of which legal ending to use, it is a matter of personal preference.


How fast are filed Articles of Incorporation processed?


Immediately. Yukon Online Incorporations are processed Monday to Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm (excluding holidays). Submissions outside of these hours will be processed the next business day.


Do I need a lawyer to get Articles of Incorporation filed?


A lawyer is always a valuable resource in terms of giving legal advice. However, a lawyer is not required to file an incorporation application in Yukon.


Can I incorporate with a different legal ending from that on the NUANS Report?


Yes, when filing your Articles of Incorporation, you can select a different legal ending from the one you had in your proposed name.


Should I have a numbered or a named corporation?


This is a matter of preference, but generally, if you are planning to operate under your corporate name or if your corporate brand is important, then often a named corporation is better.


Is a corporate number the same as GST number?


Your corporate number is the corporate identification number issued by the Ministry of Government Services and is different from the GST number that is issued by the Canada Revenue Agency.


Do I need to register extra-provincially in other provinces if I incorporated in Yukon?


This is not a requirement. However, if you wish to do business in other jurisdictions in Canada, you do need to file an extra-provincial license or registration in that jurisdiction.
