Apostilled Certificate of Good Standing – Standard Service
What is a Certificate of Good Standing?
If you require an official document that confirms your company is in good standing with the authorities in the UK, you will require a Certificate of Good Standing. The Certificate confirms that your company is in good standing with Companies House and has been in continuous unbroken existence, has filed all the yearly requirements and confirms that your company is not in the process of being struck off or liquidated.
The Certificate confirms the existence of your company on the Company Register. You also have the option to include additional details of your company, including:
• Directors – Name, Address, Date of Birth
• Secretaries – Name, Address
• SIC Code
• Registered Office Address
• Any other details which are displayed on the public records
You are able to specify what information you would like on the Certificate when in the process of placing your order.
If you do not urgently require the Certificate of Good Standing, then you are able to order the Standard Service which usually takes around 15-20 working days.
Do I need to Apostille my Certificate?
If you are going to be using your Certificate of Good Standing outside the UK, then it is usually recommended that an Apostille is applied to the Certificate of Good Standing. An Apostille is a form of authentication which is applied to the back of the Certificate so that it can be used in other countries outside the UK.
Once an Apostille has been applied the receiving party (could be an individual, business or government body) should then accept the document, as an official apostille has been affixed to the certificate. This will allow your documents to be used in other countries other than the UK without further evidence or proof required.
