We can download most Companies House documents directly from the Companies House website and notarise the downloaded copy.
Some of these documents include:
- Certificate of incorporation
- Form IN01(ef)
- Memorandum of Association
- Articles of Association
- Financial statements
- Confirmation statements
- Certificate of incorporation on change of name
- Company snapshot
When notarising the documents, the notary can either prepare individual notarial certificates for each document or bundle multiple documents under one notarial certificate. Be aware however that if you require further legalisation, some embassies don’t accept bundled documents.
One document which cannot be downloaded from Companies House is the Certificate of Good Standing. This must be ordered directly by Companies House and will contain an original wet ink signature from the Companies House official. We can still notarise the Certificate of Good Standing once obtained.
Depending on where you will be using the Companies House documents, you may also require an apostille and/or consular legalisation. We can handle both additional steps for you if required.
You can also order certified copies of any document filed at Companies House directly from Companies House. As these will contain wet ink signatures of the certifying official, they can be apostilled directly. An original wet ink signed Certificate of Good Standing can be apostilled directly. Be aware, however, that some authorities internationally may also require the notarisation step even though the FCDO will not.
