Printed Certificate of Incorporation

Get a printed copy of your Company Certificate of Incorporation delivered to your address for just £9.99.

When your UK company formation is approved by Companies House they will create a Company Certificate of Incorporation. Every Company’s Certificate of Incorporation is unique as it contains a unique company number and a unique company name.

The Company Certificate of Incorporation is the legal proof that your Company has been formed with Companies House and that it is a legal entity in it’s own right, separate from that of it’s owners and directors.

Why would you need your Printed Company Certificate of Incorporation?

Many UK companies could require their printed Company Certificate to prove to government authorities, banks, investors and other financial institutions that the Company does exist and to verify the company details such as company number and date of incorporation and the jurisdiction under which it is governed.

Is my Printed Certificate of Incorporation acceptable overseas?

It depends on the country you need to use the Incorporation certificate in.

It is generally advisable to get a notarisation and apostille certificate for the Certificate of Incorporation if you need to use your Printed Certificate of Incorporation as any kind of proof outside of the UK. We offer the Apostille Company Document Service for just £89.99 + vat. This service includes the notarisation and apostille of your Printed Certificate of Incorporation.
