A common seal is a rubber stamp used to execute company documents. Since 1st July, 1998 the use of a common seal is optional, with a document considered correctly executed by a company if it is signed by two directors or a director and secretary or by a single director if they are the sole director and secretary.

eCompanies can provide a common seal for $39 when printed documents are also ordered.
