Notarization is the process of authenticating certain classes of documents in order to prevent future disputes
  or crimes.
Necessary papers for notarization:

c) in case of corporation: certificate of corporate seal or copy of corporate registry

When loaning money, you may draw up a notarial deed and in case of a future default, be able to forcibly
  execute the debtor’s assets.
A notarized promissory note, will, money loan agreement, etc. are all examples of notarial deeds.
A notarized will authenticates your wishes regarding the division of your property to your heirs, and prevents
  future disputes among them.
 
You may authenticate private documents drawn up between individuals as reflecting the wishes of both parties.
You may authenticate various contracts, agreements, promises, pledges, translations, etc.
Notarized private documents do not have the same force as notarial deeds, but may serve as powerful proof in
  future disputes or litigation.
 
Authentication of fixed date refers to the notary’s seal which confirms the date and proves that the document
  existed at that time.
Such authentication is used to confirm the effective date in landlord-tenant agreements, assignment of
  obligations, etc.
In landlord-tenant agreements, fixed date authentication is important in dictating the priority of rights to the
  property.
 
When the obligation described in the notarial deed terminates due to settlement of debt or other reason, you
  may record this on the notarial deed in order to prevent future disputes.
 
A notarial deed containing a provision for forcible execution enables immediate execution.
