Official Apostilled Documents Service

If you are a non-UK resident and have recently created a limited company, you may be required to provide Apostilled documents in another country. Some countries require company documents to be officially legalised before they can be used outside the UK. An Apostille Certificate is a way of officially authenticating the company documents for use in other countries.

Official authentication is provided by the Foreign & Commonwealth (FCO) Department of the British Government. They check and verify all of the necessary documents to ensure they are accurate and correct, and that they are party to the 1961 Hague Convention.

Once you register a company, there are a number of important documents you need to familiarise yourself with. An apostilled document is a certified document issued by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) that confirms that the specific document has been signed and legalised by a public notary or public official

We can provide Apostille services for the following documents:

  1. Certificate of Incorporation.
  2. Memorandum & Articles of Association
  3. Share Certificates
  4. Other documents upon request (additional charge may be applied)

Official Apostilled Service

These documents are required to set up an overseas office or branch of a UK business or to set up a business bank account from outside the UK. Certain company documents (certificates) should be legalised by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office to verify the authenticity of the company, and each relevant document needs a separate apostilled certificate.
