Can I sign documents with the same qualified e-signature certificate?
Yes. Whether you sign on behalf of a company or as an individual or self-employed, just as a handwritten signature does, an electronic signature does not have to be different in the three cases. With a qualified electronic signature, you can enter into contracts and make statements on behalf of your company on the Platform without any physical or time limit. A qualified e-signature is also accepted by the court, and an e-signature registered in the company register is also considered a company-like signature.
What do I need to do to sign on behalf of a company?
The Qualified Electronic Signature looks the same in all cases, whether you sign on behalf of a company or as an individual or self-employed, just as a handwritten signature is no different in the three cases.
The exact quality of the signature should not be clear from the e-signature but from the content of the document. Therefore, if you sign on behalf of a company, the requirements for a company-like signature are:
name of the company,
the name of the individual representing it,
and in what position it represents the company
be clearly included in the content of the document to be signed with a qualified e-signature.
