Certificate of Good Standing with Apostille

The Certificate of Good Standing is a document that is often requested by overseas authorities and organisations. Banks and other financial institutions often request these documents to check on the status of a UK company.

The certificate may be requested to confirm the companies official registered details and also that according to the records held at Companies House the company is ‘in good standing’. This means that the company filing is currently up to date and that no action is being taken by the registrar to strike the company from the register.

This certificate is often legalised with an Apostille when presented overseas. This ensures that the document is officially recognised as a UK document.

Our fees


Our fees for ordering the certificate on a standard service (5-7 days) are £35. We can also order the certificate on an expedite (1-2 day)service for £70.
If you want the certificate of good standing to be issued with an apostille certificate our fees are £54 for the apostille and £35 for the standard certificate of good standing.
