Apostilled Documents Services

from £34.99 +VAT

Non-UK residents who form a limited company in the UK are frequently required to have specific business incorporation documents legalised so that they can be used in other countries. To prove that a company document is valid and may be used in another nation, an Apostille Certificate must be obtained and added to it.

A Notary validates the document and provides official authentication. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office next affixes an Apostille Certificate to the confirmed document (FCDO). The documents will be accepted in all nations that have signed the 1961 Hague Convention as a result of this process.

When creating a business bank account or a new branch of your firm in a foreign country, it is frequently necessary to attach an Apostille Certificate to your company documents.

Our Apostille service can legalise a variety of business papers, including the Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum & Articles of Association, Companies House IN01 Form, and Certificate of Good Standing. Additional documents can be Apostilled upon request if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are documents that have been apostilled?

Apostille Certificates are a type of certification that is appended to official documents. Before the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) adds the Apostille Certificate to ensure authenticity, documents are authenticated by a solicitor.

This permits the documents to be used outside of the United Kingdom.

Is it necessary for me to have my company's documentation apostilled?

If you wish to open a business bank account outside of the UK, or if you want to open a new branch of your company abroad, you should only need Apostilled paperwork.

What is the maximum number of papers I can have Apostilled?

You can have an unlimited number of papers Apostilled at any given time. We consider the Memorandum and Articles of Association to be one document for the purpose of attaching an Apostille Certificate. Apostille certificates are required for all other documents.

When will my documents be apostilled?

We will certify your documents and send them to the FCDO for the Apostille Certificate to be attached after we receive payment.

We will send your Apostilled documents to you free of charge through Royal Mail Special Delivery or International Tracked and Signed service after they have been returned to us. DHL and other premium couriers are also available.

Where may I use my documents that have been apostilled?

Any of the 115 nations that have signed the 1961 Hague Convention will accept apostilled corporate documentation. We can't say whether these documents will be accepted in any other country that isn't a signatory to the Convention.

What kind of documents are apostille?

The most commonly apostille documents are those issued by Companies House, such as:

  • Certificate of Good Standing
  • Certificate of Incorporation
  • Memorandum & Articles of Association
  • IN01 Form Companies House
  • Any other forms that have been filed with Companies House (such as AP01, CS01 or other)

Any additional documents that need to be apostilled might be sought during the application process.
