    Default Re: Certification (Business/Legal English)

    The Registrar of Corporate Affairs of the British Virgin Islands HEREBY CERTIFIES pursuant to the International Business Companies Act,Cap.291 that all the requirement of the Act in respect of incorporation having been satisfied,
    ◊◊◊◊◊◊company limited.
    is incorporated in the British Virgin Island as an International Business Company this 9th day of September,2005.
    Hello!

    Q1: Why isn't " this 9th day of September, 2005" written as "on Sept. 9th, 2005"?

    Q2: Is " Cap." an abbreviation? If yes, what is it in full?


    Thank you!

    not a teacher

    1. The language used in certificates is usually more elaborate, formal and takes up more space (or the certificate would look rather empty!). Example:

    This is to certify that

    xxxxx

    was on the 26th day of July 1995

    was conferred/elected/awarded......

    2. That should be an abbreviation. My guess - caption?
