When purchasing a Nova Scotia business search there are a number of different types.  A search of NS companies, NS sole proprietorships, NS partnerships and NS operating trade names can be done.

Buy Now



If you request us to perform a search of a Nova Scotia company registered with the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stocks, you will be able to obtain information on (a) the registered office location, (b) the mailing address, (c) type of company, (d) the number assigned to the company by the Nova Scotia government, (e) the nature of business of the NS company, (f) the names and addresses of the directors and officers of the company, (g) a history of the types of filings made by the company with the Nova Scotia government.

You will not be able to determine the ownership of a Nova Scotia company by performing a NS corporate search.  This is considered private information.

With respect to the list of directors and officers on file with the Nova Scotia government, every company registered must annually complete a NS annual return.  This return requests current information about the directors and officers.  Therefore, a NS company search will provide information on file which will be accurate up to the date of the last annual filing performed. You will be able to determine this by looking at the history of the filings on record.  If the company regularly updates it’s record with the government as it is required to do, the information will be current as of the date of the search.  You will be able to tell how often the company updates it’s record by reviewing the activities with respect to its filings with the NS government.
