What is a Memorandum of Association?

A Memorandum of Association is a document produced when a company is formed. It includes the names of all subscribers to the memorandum and confirms that those named wish to form the company and take at least one share.

Companies House produces the document automatically when you register your company online. For paper applications, though, you must complete it yourself and request signatures from all subscribers. 

A record of the Memorandum of Association will be kept online at Companies House, and can be accessed by the public through the Companies House website. 

When Do You Need Memorandum of Association Notarisation?

Organisations overseas may request a notarised copy of your Memorandum of Association for a variety of reasons.  It is commonly requested along with the certificate of incorporation and articles of association of a company.

Notarisation adds an extra layer of authenticity, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and regulations.

If your document is requested by a party outside of the UK, reach out to our qualified notaries, who can check your specific needs. Some countries require an apostille and/or consular legalisation in addition to notarisation. We can complete the entire process to get your document certified as soon as possible.
