  • Proof of address in the name of the company – not older than three months

Should the public officer or the company NOT have any proof of address in their name then the CRA01 form can be completed by a 3rd party with their proof of address as well for the Public Officer.

The Public Officer can then complete the CRA01 for the company with her/his proof of address.
