Why do I need my company documents apostilled?


If you need to open a bank account for your company in a foreign bank or to open a branch of your company outside of the UK then you will most probably need your documents to be appostiled. For some countries you will also need your apostilled documents to be also certified at the embassy of that country.


Apostille Certificate will be legally recognised in the countries members of the Hague Convention without further legalisation. Please, find a list of countries members of Hague Convention on the right hand side.


Company Apostilled documents can be ordered "in one set" or separately. In most cases company documents ordered all "in one set" with common Apostille Certificate will be accepted in most countries for the purpose of opening a bank account and in some countries for the purpose of opening a branch. However, some countries require your company documents to be apostilled separately (especially for the purpose of opening a branch).


Always make sure to ask your bank or branch registrator exactly what  documents required by them before ordering such documents from us.


Ordering apostilled documents "in one set" is cheaper as you only need to pay for one Apostille Sertificate for all the documents in a bundle, however, please, make sure you know what documents you need to avoid disappointment and extra expenses.


How will apostilled documents look like ?


The bundle will consist of a copy of required documents certified by a public notary and with Apostille Certificate attached to the bundle. Documents issued by government bodies can be apostiled as copies OR directly in original.


Will I get my original documents intact ?


Yes. If you send us your original documents to be apostilled, we will take notorized copy from it and then proceed with Apostille. Your original documents will be sent back to you intact UNLESS you ask us to apostile government issued document in original.


If you order apostilled documents for your UK company then you don't need to send us your originals at all. We will produce a new set of general company documents for you at no extra charge directly from Companies House.


How to pay ?


Payment can be made by Debit/Credit Card, PayPal, Bank Transfer in GBP or EUR, UK Cheque, Cash at our office or Western Union.
