What Is a Conformed Signature?

By Devin Scott Tuesday, July 18, 2017

what is a conformed signatureOftentimes, business transactions are done by smartphone while on the go. Many people know already that Delaware will accept faxed and emailed copies of documents that require signatures.


This saves you the time of having to put a document in the mail, and then waiting for the state to receive it. However, what do you do if you are on the road and have to sign and send a document?


You may not have access to a computer, printer, or fax machine.

Solution: the conformed signature.


The state of Delaware does, indeed, accept conformed signatures. A conformed signature looks like this:

 /s/ John Doe. 

Just type /s/ before your name on the signature line, and it will be acceptable by us as well as the Secretary of State of Delaware. This can help save you time, as it avoids the need to print out a document, sign it and then fax it back.


You can also save time by using the conformed signature from their smartphone while on the go. Most smartphones will allow you to check your email, open the attached document, and type in your conformed signature in seconds.


This way you can send that document back to the appropriate party without having to print it out.


Services that often require a signature, such as name amendments and stock amendments, can now be initiated more efficiently by using a conformed signature. There are other states that also accept the conformed signature for certain services. 


Please call 1-800-345-2677 to find out if the service you require qualifies for the conformed signature.


Keep in mind that the IRS does not accept the conformed signature, so all SS4 forms and tax returns will still need to be printed, signed and sent in.
